Legless, leaping fish that lives on land

4 posts in this topic

"This terrestrial fish spends all of its adult life living on the rocks in the splash zone, hopping around defending its territory, feeding and courting mates. They offer a unique opportunity to discover in a living animal how the transition from water to the land has taken place," says Dr Ord, of the UNSW School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences.

Periophthalmus gracilis (from Malaysia to North Australia)

Give them a few more million years and they will be walking about hunting for food and living off the land.

They will not become humans as it seems we came from a chimp and a pig.
