About This Fish

The Tallapoosa Sculpin is restricted to the Tallapoosa River System in the Mobile Basin. They are found in rocky and sandy pools of upland creeks to medium rivers. Like all sculpins, they are ambush predators that use their cryptic coloration to hide on stream bottoms and eat anything that fits into their extremely large mouth.
