Caption: Tropical gar (Atractosteus tropicus). X-ray of a section through a tropical gar, showing its long jaws (left). Gars (family Lepisosteiformes) are voracious predators that use the teeth in their elongated jaws to trap other fish. Their tough body is covered with thick, bony scales, which are visible in this image. This specimen measures 39.5 centimetres in length.
