Did yall know this?

Alligator gar eggs are poisonous, to birds, animals, and humans, but safe for other fish to eat.

A single female alligator gar can produce 100,000 to 300,000 eggs. But the quantity of these eggs is not unusual. Itís what the eggs contain thatís remarkable: a deadly toxin.

Unlike most fish, alligator gar can breathe air from the surface, allowing them to live and hunt in swamps and marshes where oxygen levels are low.

I saw the same thing last week. They enjected a poor little crayfish with the poison.
I tend to over think fishing. Please help me.
When I am over complicating something please kick me in the face. Hard.
