The Longnose Gar skull (Lepisosteus osseus) measures 7 inches to 15 inches. The Garfish is an impressive fish native to American rivers and bays. It is known to reach over eight feet in length, and has a long snout full of needle-sharp teeth in two rows. It's an opportunistic ambush predator, it tends to float or stand still in the water, then lunge forward snatching its prey. It feeds mostly fish and invertebrates, but has been know to snack on birds and small mammals. Its bite can be severe, if provoked, but it is a mostly harmless fish despite its huge size and fearsome mouth of needle like teeth. It's a wonderful addition to any skull collection but be careful while handling it. It's teeth are still very very sharp.
