    Three gar species are native to Kansas, the longnose, shortnose and spotted gar. Before the alligator gar was confirmed, Smith posted a photo on a Facebook page for 'whisker seekers,' a catfishing group.

    Smith said that 'A lot of people thought it was a spotted gar, or a shortnose. Some said alligator, but then people said they ain't here.' And I told them: 'well, there's one here because it's in the bottom of my boat.' "
