"Alligator Fish" (10 pics)

Posted in Animals   17 Jan 2011   / 22095 views

It is almost possible to confuse this fish with an alligfator by looking at the first picture.

This monster fish is called the alligator gar (Atractosteus spatula), is a primitive ray-finned fish.

 

The alligator gar is the largest exclusively freshwater fish found in North America, measuring eight to ten feet and weighing at least 200 lb (91 kg) at maturity. The current world record for the largest Alligator Gar caught on rod and reel is 279 lb (127 kg). The largest taken by Bowfishing is 365 lb (166 kg). The fish is also known for its ability to survive outside the water, being able to last for up to two hours above the surface.

I'm from Mexico those are known right here like Peje Lagarto, and we eat those in Tabasco, you have to clean real well the guts, because if you don't the smell could be very bad, it's a delicious dish.

En México se conocen como Peje Lagartos, se comen y son muy sabrosos, pero tienen que estar super bien limpios sino, el olor no te dejarìa comerlos.

Nice pictures, real classy fisherman if ya know what I mean.

By the the way, I presume the fuck thing reffered to evoulution in the above comments right? If so, then I have to clarify that evolution does not work by two different kind of animals fuck each other to produce a new kind of an animal, to the contrary of the popular way South Park has depicted it.
