Wild Fact #24 – The Land Loving Fish – Mudskipper

800px-GambianMudskippers

You know the old saying “like a fish out of water”, which usually refers to something awkward and out of place. Well, the people who coined that phrase have never met the Mudskipper. This is the only known fish that spends most of their time on land. This includes eating, mating and even fighting.

Today’s Wild Fact is going to be a little different as the National Geographic has compiled a video that describes this animal perfectly, so I am going to try and top it. ┬áMy favourite part is the way the Mudskipper moisten their eyes. Check out the video below and please don’t hesitate to leave a comment if you have any questions.
