Here's some pics:


Rosy lipped batfish


"These animals can swim, but not very well. They walk better than they swim by using modified pectoral and pelvic fins to move around the bottom. Batfish are carnivorous and reportedly voracious eaters."

I was diving a couple years ago off the island where they are found, yet that guy saw it in the shallows. Normally when you take a dive tour with a local dive master they give you a brief of what you may see like coming attractions. There was no mention of that critter. I am going to have to go back now and search to get some pics.

Never heard of this until now...good Catch


i guess that story of how fish crawled out of the water and eventually became humans must be true then
