Alligator gar

Following on from the Montauk Monster, we now have the alligator gar, or gator gar, however this is definitely a real creature.

Young Jose Chavez caught one in Kiwanis Lake in Tempe, Phoenix, but they're not normally found in Arizona, they actually prohibited.  They are usually found in South-Eastern United States.  Jose only caught a little one, but they can grow up to twelve feet, and they can breathe air so they can survive out of the water for a couple of hours.

Imagine hauling in a big one and it snapping and thrashing and the thing won't die!
