What kind of fish is this?
« on: Jul 15, 2013, 04:56 PM »
I recently stayed the night in Ridgeland, SC. It rained so hard the parking lot of the hotel looked like a river. After the rain stopped I went out to my truck. In the middle of the parking lot I found a live fish. Could someone identify it for me.

Thanks,
Rock

It didn't have any big teeth and the anal fin is short. Bowfin, maybe?

from the looks there is a dot by its tail. So yes I'd say its a bowfin or dogfish as they are better known here

Thank you all. I put it back in a nearby stream that was about 500 yards from the hotel.
