The alligator gar is Texas' most fascinating freshwater fish.  Here's a fantastic animation that shows how this predator feeds:

Texas Parks and Wildlife has an excellent page about the alligator gar. Did you know that there are actually four varieties of gar that appear in Texas?  I didn't, until just now.
