Gar

found

Gar, freshwater fish of the family Lepisosteidae with long, thin bodies, long jaws, and an armor of diamond-shaped scales. Gars are usually found in shallow, weedy water from Canada to Costa Rica, but the alligator gar (Lepisosetus spatula), which can reach 10 ft (3 m) in length, may be found in saltwater.
