New un-identified amphibious species discovered

Not sure what it is, but atleast the air bubbles appear to be coming from the front of the creature grin

My girlfriend did an extensive study of the creature. She highly noted two things.

1) Air bubbles come from both ends in near equal amounts. Thats why we always tell my nieces while swimming - "dont bite the bubbles".

2) The thing is a fish catching machine!

Does this expulsion of air act as a defense mechanism or is it more of a sonic blast that stuns bait fish?

She cant really pin down the "why" for the gas release. The creature definatly takes pleasure in the release and post release effects. This leads her to believe it may be some sort of "device" to ward off air breathing annoyances? Or it could have something to do with balast and neutral boyancy? The study continues...

So it acts as a ballast in other words? Similar to a submarine. Very interesting!!!

Now if it can fine tune this ability like the fish that spits water at it's prey to knock it off a branch and into the water. I can see where it would blow fish out of the water. The photo shows as if it were under pressure and ready to attack. Also looks to be quadripedal, allowing it to retrieve land-stricken game.

Oh, the thing is in constant predator mode. It actually seems to enjoy the hunt and subsequent kill. It will eat anything but favorite meals include walleyes, panfish, whitetails, pigs, and cows. It will also eat veggies, greens and mushrooms. Besides water it seems to have a taste for milk and brewed beverages that contain barley and hops...

She also said that "bloated" look has something to do with hamburgs, hotdogs, and beverages...

Not only is it a master in the art of disguise with what appears to be a removable duck bill or some sort of shark fin to fool it's quarry, but it's also a master in fluid dynamics.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
