Alligator Alligator gar

How would you like to see this on the other end of your fishing line?

Alligator Gar...8ft.10inches.....327 pounds.....

Okay, this is why people just disappear from the lakes in Oklahoma! And yes, this is for real.

All totaled, the monster Texas alligator gar was slightly more than 8 feet, 2 inches in length, weighed 244.5 pounds, and measured 44.75 inches in girth - NOT the 327 pounds as noted in the second photo.
I'm generally a stickler for accuracy, but my reaction to that sentence is a very sarcastic "Oh, that's entirely different then! Only 244.5 pounds!"
