Siamese Pike

Eric Holland sent me this photo of a siamese pike caught at Cooney Dam, 30 miles SW of Billings.

It's incredible that they lived to grow that big. They both look to be alive. They probably have two stomachs. Looks like one of them is just along for the ride. Is this real?

I have known the source of this picture for 30+ years, we have ridden together in the back of a police cruiser and I back him up 100% as the best storyteller I know.

Now I am starting to suspect photoshop-- the fish on the left starts out sharing its lower jaw with the fish on the right, which would put his dark green back to the inside, but in the picture fish #2's back is to the outside..

A better theory-- not Siamese, not photoshop, but one pike tucked under the gill of the other..

I agree with the latter theory.
