Bull Minnow

Fundulus grandis


This was just a juvenile, deceptively placid and harmless. As adults, which can range in color but generally maintain their mottled/spotty grayed appearance, they will eat most anything they can get in their mouths. They can top out around 4" or so in length.


Living in estuaries in the mangroves, the coastal waters near shore, and pretty much anywhere there is salt or brackish shallow water, these guys can be found year-round here in Florida.


Goes by many names: Cocahoe minnow, bull minnow, mud minnow, and gulf killifish among them.
