A fish that walks on land

THE Australian walking fish is a most unusual creature. When in water it swims like any fish, but on land it behaves as if it belongs there - it actually walks! Its gills are bent in such a way that it can stroll out of the water. It can even climb up to the low branches of a tree and sit there for hours. This strange fish manages quite well on land and even munches on insects it finds in the trees. - bigsiteofamazingfacts.com; sciencedaily.com; travelpod.com
