Peter..thanks for scientific clarification..!!
Yes I saw how they crawl on muddy surface after low tide. They have Dog like behavior to protect their territory, and seen fighting with each other with wide open jaws..looks very funny..!!
"they are completely amphibious fish,fish that can use their pectoral fins to walk on land...."
OK..I thought its Subfamily Oxudercinae is counted in Amphibians..!!
Mudskippers are fish, in the Goby family.
it was in a swamp,i´m not sure but i think it was salty...
Mudskippers do not have lungs which is characteristic of amphibians. They are part of the Ray-finned fish (Actinopterygii) family and breath through their gills.
Mitch Mudskippers aren't Amphibians..?
Switching this guy to fish. Nice spotting by the way.
Ohh...!!I just checked map..!!That Lake is of sweet or salty water..?
there were no flamingos near by, the picture was taken in thailand in national park.
Renata..Are Flamingos located nearby where you find this Mudskipper.Its Amphibian Organism...!!
