Silver redhorse

The silver redhorse, Moxostoma anisurum, is a species of freshwater fish endemic to Canada from Quebec to Alberta and in the United States in the Mississippi River, St. Lawrence River, Ohio River, and the Great Lakes basins. It is typically found in lakes and in small to large rivers, where it often lives in undercut banks or protruding tree roots.

A bottom-feeder, it feeds on mollusks, algae, detritus, immature insects, and other small organisms.
