From Wikipedia:
Mudskippers are members of the subfamily Oxudercinae (tribe: Periophthalmini; Murdy, 1989), within the family Gobiidae (Gobies). While most marine fish live in intertidal habitats, surviving the retreat of the tide by hiding under wet seaweed or by using tide pools, mudskippers are uniquely adapted to a completely amphibious lifestyle (Graham, 1997). Mudskippers are found only in tropical and subtropical regions, having a geographical distribution that includes all the Indo-Pacific and the Atlantic coast of Africa. Mudskippers are very active when out of water, feeding and interacting with one another, for example to defend their territories.

This is really a strange thing... So this is a fish that is living outside the water ? I had never seen this before. He even seems to have legs. Good colors, details and composition, well done and thanks for sharing!
