Walking fish

This amazing and rather rare fish is called the Streaked Gurnard (Chelidonichthys lastoviza). It gives the impression of riding on the back of a crab, but in reality, part of its pectoral fins have evolved into locomotor organs. This allows him to literally walk on the sand! When it begins to swim, this fish unfolds impressively colorful fins.
