Yeah, not sure either. Thinking a Sculpin or a darter?

As a marine biologist in the PNW that's most assuredly a sculpin. What species I couldn't tell you without my dissecting microscope and dichotomous key.


There are 26 species of freshwater sculpin in the PNW so I didn't exactly narrow it down for you. But I also am not a limnologist 😋
