As more details about Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's life on the run since he escaped a maximum-security prison (again) continue to be revealed, like the fact that he made having penis surgery a priority, and other information about how exactly the drug kingpin was caught (a case of the late night taco munchies) comes a new alleged photo of "El Chapo" in prison.

The photo was tweeted out by Mexican journalist Carlos Loret de Mola of the Mexican newspaper El Universal, granted entry into the Altiplano prison where "El Chapo" is currently behind bars. Yes, the same Altiplano prison which he escaped from this past summer through an underground tunnel. Loret de Mola, who was the first to describe the house where "El Chapo" was last hiding in before being caught, tweeted the photo last night. 

According to El Universal the prison has increased security measures to ensure "El Chapo" doesn't strike again, reports ABC. The newspaper reports that guard dogs trained to detect "El Chapo" have been set in place in addition to outfitting prison guards with helmet cameras and more security cameras. As a precaution "El Chapo" won't be left in one cell instead being moved around in over 30 cells. El Universal said in his first five nights "El Chapo" had been moved seven times. 

"El Chapo" could be extradited to the U.S.
