    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?

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

      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)
