Crucifixion Fish

If you ever visit a Texas beach or a Gulf Coast beach you may see one of these. It is part of a catfish skeleton that is called the Crucifixion Fish. If the piece is dried well it will rattle like the “dice” that were used to cast lots for Jesus’ garment. It is actually the “head” of the fish and since people have searched for the name we affectionally call them Hardhead Catfish.
