-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!–
