Another Big Ugly Ass Animal

I haven't posted a big ugly ass animal in a long time. This is one of the ugliest fish known to man, the Alligator Gar. According to this site and this site, it was caught at Sam Rayburn Lake here in Texas by Keith Riehn and Robin Parks (8'2", 244.5 lbs certified, 44.75" girth).

I have heard of those things. Are they edible? Do they taste much like dog or cat?

Gosh, Laurie, I didn't realize just how much I was missing big ugly ass animals (or whatever you call them). Thanks!!

I was just catching up and watched the video you linked in the previous post! EEEKKK!!! That soldier with the holy water was scary as hell.

Ummm... heads up, Rita is heading your way. :(

Take care.

Awwww, cute!!

Old Horsetail - Are you kidding? This is Cajun country. We eat anything. The meat is tough (as you can imagine) but quite tasty so it is usually finely shredded and made into garfish balls. Seriously.

Sophmom - How about that scary video, huh? Wild. We're watching out for Rita. Thanks for the heads up. :)

Lorna - Are you looking at the fishermen or the fish?

Astrid said...

Wow, yeah, what is it? It seems like some sort of mixed creature or something!

Ugly? I say awesome! But then again, maybe I am biased, since I am one of the fishermen.

Very tasty indeed.

laurie: I am sure lorna meant the fish...I mean look at us!

Kinda cool to come across our pix in this place.

Robin - Awesome indeed. I bet you guys freaked out when you pulled that thing out of the water. Kinda cool that you left a comment here in this place with your picture. :)
