-GARS return to Shedd Aquarium!!!–

Solomon David‘s gars, to be exact!  I will keep updates coming on the newly added gars to the exhibits at the John G. Shedd Aquarium (Chicago), but here is a quick photo preview!  I am very excited to have several of the gars from my personal and research collection now on display at Shedd Aquarium!  Come and see them (and all the other fishes and aquatic life) in Chicago!–

-National Geographic Photo – Gator vs Gar

-A great photo from National Geographic: “Down the Hatch” captures an alligator eating a Florida gar (Lepisosteus platyrhincus).  The caption on the site actually misidentifies the gar as an alligator gar (Atractosteus spatula), but morphology (also locality) definitely indicate L. platyrhincus.  We have submitted a message to them with this information (we will see if it is fixed!)  Great photograph reGARdless!–
