Did you know ...

... that gars are "pre-historic"? Alligator gars are believed to have been around for 100 million years and can breathe air and water. They use a modified swim bladder that can supplement the gill respiration system, which allows them to survive in areas of low oxygen. They also have inflexible ganoid scales which make them nearly impenetrable.

Go through the tunnel in the aquarium and look up to watch our alligator gars swim overhead and around you.
