Description

My friends and I crossed a busy intersection of the residential area where the jogging trail continued around 2:09PM (77 degrees F and quite humid), and walking down the side of the flood control/drainage ditch to the small creek that is separated from the lake that is part of Westlake Residential, we spotted this gar swimming slowly through the slow moving creek (although there were areas of more rapid moving water where the plant life created a bottleneck). The gar is fairly small for what its species is know for, a little over a foot and a half long, and there was an even smaller one downstream of it by a couple of feet (but I did not identify or take a picture of it) that was pointed out by one of my friend. The black spots were mostly focused along the sides of the fish, and were more concentrated closer to the caudal fin. This particular gar liked to swim close to the denser patches of vegetation, and seemed to stay fixed to the particular spot shown in the photo; however, when we returned about 30 minutes later with a net to try and capture it to get a better identification, we were not able to find it again (or its companion) along the 40 ft stretch starting from the drainage holes by Fite Road.
