I had someone tell me that some gar can breath air. Is this True??
Yes, Gars have a lunglike gas bladder which permits air-breathing to supplement their gills, allowing them to live in low-oxygen conditions.
i have seen them out of water over night for about 8 hours and then u put them back in water and they swim off after about 5 mins.... sounds weird but its true
wow, never knew that, thanks.
Yes, it's true. that is why you will hear them hit the surface when your out fishing. They are getting a breath of air. I have a florida Gar (14") in my fish tank and it's neat to see how they do it.
