    Why was its stomache bleeding/releasing red liquid when you were showing the underbelly? Was it some sort of a defensive response or just irritation from the netting? Fun episode!

    Ayo ik I'm late but the fish looked like it was bleeding underneath. Like he lifted it up to show the underbelly of the gar and it looked like there was blood, is the buddy ok? D:

    When he flipped the gar over to see it’s belly was it bleeding? If so Was that because the scales were moving and blood came out between them?

    Not all hybrids are sterile. Some hybrids snakes are fertile and used in the pet trade. Has any actual testing been to see if the crocodile gar are sterile?

    “Hybrids cannot reproduce” Then how did we got all different kinds of dogs

  46. Sam Zhango

    Sam ZhangoПре 2 месеца

    Dogs are bred from wolves, so it is reproduction within the same species and not hybridization. For actual hybrids, some can reproduce (i.e. most if not all known bird hybrids) while others can’t (i.e. mules and others)
