Prehistoric Fish

When I read the headline saying “Two Giant Prehistoric Fish Found in South China Waterway” I assumed that someone had been shopping in Bubugao Hypermarket’s crappy seafood section again., but no.

It seems that two alligator gar fish were found in Hedong Park (河东公园). These are native to the southern United States and northern Mexico and are thought to have been dumped into the park’s artificial lake by someone who kept them as pets until they grew too large. They are over 1 metre long and weigh around 10 kg each.

Alligator gar have been around since the time of the dinosaurs with fossil evidence indicating the fish were around over a 100 million years ago.

Under Chinese law, releasing non-native species into the environment can be punished with a fine of up to 10,000元


I wonder what they taste like.
