Mudskippers can be found in the Pacific Ocean, from Africa to Polynesia and Australia. They live in swamps and estuaries and on mud flats and are known for their climbing, walking and jumping ability.
Their blunt heads are covered with large, agile, bulging eyes that stand close together. With their strong pectoral fins, they can move quickly on land. Out of the water, they breathe with air trapped in their gill chambers and through their skin. They hunt crustaceans and other small animals.
