Crocodile Fish

Feeding: Birds and mammals flying near the water surface.

Habitat: Southern USA and northern Mexico.

Alligator fish are called “primitive fish” or “living fossil” because they retain some of the morphological features of their oldest ancestors. Shiny scales are virtually impenetrable and provide excellent protection against predators. They can grow up to 3 meters long and weigh up to 137 kg.
