Texas Fisherman Catches 300-Pound, 8-Foot “Absolute Dinosaur” Alligator Gar

The gar’s girth came in at 48 inches, and it was 8 feet, 2 inches long. Based on those numbers, Moore estimated the gar weighed about 300 pounds. Like sturgeon, gar can live for decades. The Texas gar state record is a 302-pound fish that was caught in 1953. Moore’s gar may have topped that record, but he chose to release the brute instead of trying to weigh it on a certified scale.

@nedkelly true but its not a gar
How could he resist those puppy-fish eyes?
@Mamapolo2016 always liked gar living fossils
