|Long-nose Gar (Lepisosteus osseus) photographed at the St Paul Science Museum. They are ancient fish, dating from the days of the dinosaur and they look like no other fish you might find in Minnesota waters. Look for them in warm, quiet waters but watch out for their sharp teeth and aggressive nature. They are agressive preditors of other fish and are fairly high in the food chain as they are rarely eaten by other fish or humans.|
