"The gar genus Lepisosteus is extraordinarily long-lived with fossils known from as early as the Jurassic and four species still living today. The hard scales of this primitive fish are some of the most common fossils found in Hell Creek. Like the modern species, Hell Creek Lepisosteus inhabit shallow, slow moving waters in the floodplain. Being ambush predators, they seek areas with high abundance of aquatic vegetation which is used for cover".
