Sea Robin, rubio

Trigloporus lastoviza

Description:

This fish walks and flights over the sea bottom!!! When I saw it was approaching to me walking by the sea bottom and after It opened its wings and flew. Sea robins have six spiny "legs", three on each side. These legs are actually flexible spines that were once part of the pectoral fin. Over time, the spines separated themselves from the rest of the fin, developing into feeler-like "forelegs." Sea robins have six spiny "legs", three on each side.

Notes:

The blue color of the fins is real! It is very surprising when open the fins like wings, It looks like if it where flying
