Weird Fishes

Found this strange little creature on a west coast Vancouver island beach recently. It’s apparently a pacific snake prickleback according to my diligent search for answers (half assedly combing through my coffee table copy of Marine Life of the Pacific Northwest). The extreme low tides of the spring exposed large eelgrass beds normally not seen and this guy was just ambling around the shallows. Prickleback fry patterns anybody?



A definitely living garter snake that just was sitting underwater apparently no worse for wear in the shallows of a local river


And of course the mysterious sea run death trout
