We have them in the rivers here in Illinois, they used to show up on my families trot lines all the time, but they dont get nearly that big from what i've seen. Imagine you're lazing around in a river & one of these mistakes your milky white foot for a fish... one of those could easily drown a man IMO.
Those are alligator gar. Supposedly they donít move north of Oklahoma but Iíve seen them in Grand Lake, which is partially fed by the Neosho so I donít see how theyíre not in Kansas also.
Mostly we have short and long nose gar which donít get as big as the alligator gar but I have seen long nose gar up to 5í long so they can get pretty damn big themselves.
