Tree Climbing Fish

As crazy as it sounds, it’s a fact! The Climbing Perch (Anabas Testudineus) is it’s real name. They are quite common in south Asia and it is known to the land and also climbing palm trees! Crazy hey?

It can even walk some distance across country in search of better habitat. The species has a special adaption of its gills which it allows it to absorb atmospheric oxygen.

He had enough of swimming, so it was time for a walk. 😀
