    I don't think jackknifes and drums mix. I'll go with C.

    OK We all got it wrong! LOL

    The answer is B!

    The drum family, Sciaenidae, includes mostly in shore fishes like drums, croakers, whitings, and Sea trouts, but it also includes the reef drums, Equetus sp., the hi hat, the spotted drum and the jackknife fish, all beautiful Atlantic reef fish. Fish incidentally do not retire they work until the very end!

    Sheleen, I guess jackknifes and drums to mix!

    Also I never knew that croakers were in the drum family.
