Family Synodontidae ? lizardfishes

Synodus foetens ? inshore lizardfish

The inshore lizardfish, Synodus foetens, is a solitary, voracious predator lurking in shallow bays and shore waters and reaching a length of up to 16 inches. The lizardfish is oblong or cigar-shaped with sandy, splotched coloration above to match the seafloor and a silver belly and sides. Its head looks very lizard-like, and its large mouth has needle-like teeth lining the jaws, tongue, and roof of the mouth. It can be found on sandy bottoms fairly near to shore from Massachusetts to Brazil and in the Gulf of Mexico. The lizardfish often sits on the sandy bottom, propping itself up on its ventral fins. It eats small fish, crabs, shrimp, worms, and other small aquatic animals. While often caught by fishermen, it is considered a nuisance
