Coastal Élites

Leaping Blenny

The leaping blenny is a fish that has bailed on the whole ocean thing, like it’s so 3 billions years ago. Of course, they couldn’t live without the ocean, because without the gentle kiss of sea spray found on the rocks near the waves, they would dry out and die. They have gills and lungs like normal fish, but they also have a dermal lung that allows them to breathe air through their skin, like any amphibian. In spite of its need for moisturizing, the fish has essentially forsaken the sea and spends its most of its life on land. Good news: you are now safe from big fish with nasty sharp pointy teeth. Bad news: Welcome to lizards, crabs and seagull hell. It’s hard being a fish out of water.
