Fun fact! Mudskippers are completely amphibious fish, and use their pectoral fins to “walk” on land. They are also able to catapult themselves up to 2 feet into the air by also flipping their muscular bodies. By retaining a bubble of air in its enlarged gill chambers and breathing through the pores of its wet skin, the mudskipper is able to survive out of water in moist habitats.
