There is also a $300 reward if you know where this is:

Stolen from the Sheepshead Bay area 4/2/09 (in English that's 2/4/09).

If you live in Brooklyn and see it, contact the police.

As for that thingy, Archie, it looks like a Big Mouth Eel with a hair-lip.

Could be some sort of manta (devilfish) or stingray perhaps?
Ah, the motor makes it doubtable though?

What do you feed it?

This unreal looking beastie was found off of Tasmania in deep water. As soon as I saw its splendid form I knew I'd seen a photo of it. Sea squirts are really interesting animals. I used to see them when diving off the coast of Maine. It's a great place to dive. First you get to jump a couple of meters off rocks into the water. Then the water makes your hands and feet numb in 20 minutes. By the time you leave the beauty of the underwater world you shiver and try to climb up the rocks to get out with waves smacking your back.

Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ascidiacea to learn more about these fascinating marine animals.

Sea squirts eat their own brains, perhaps the one in the photo is a relative of Archie.
