African Dwarf Frog (Hymenochirus sp.)


The Florida gar is one of the more common species in its family, found throughout the temperate and subtropical waters of the Southeastern United States. Like all gar, they are predators, feeding on fish, frogs, and vertebrates. In the wild, these fish can reach 3 feet or more in length, and should be considered only suitable for the largest custom aquariums or large ponds. With its range in warmer regions, this species is more tolerant of tropical temperatures than many of its relatives but still prefers water on the cooler side than most aquarium fish.
