Huge Gar Washes Ashore at Lake Belton
Imagine you're having a nice stroll by the lake when you suddenly come across this.
Even if you knew what it was, chances are you'd be at least a little startled!
Our friend, Olivia Johnston, was at McGregor Park this past weekend when she came across the body of a giant gar pinned down by a tree branch.
Olivia moved the branch to get a better view of this fascinating fish.
Here's a look at its underside and that long snout.
We're not sure if it's an alligator gar or a longnose gar. Do you know? And have you ever caught one of these beasts or seen one washed ashore at Lake Belton? If you got a photo, we'd love to see it!
