Why some are called Fantastic Fish?

There are thousands of kinds of fish. If you tried to choose the most fantastic fish, you’d have a hard time.

The mudskipper has a head like a frog and a body like a fish. It often crawls onto land. It can jump up and catch flying insects in its mouth.

The archerfish shoots its food down with water. The archerfish swims at the top of the water until a beetle comes buzzing past. Then the fish shoots a stream of water from its mouth. The water hits the beetle with such force that it falls down into the water. The archerfish gobbles it up.

The elephant-nose mormyrid is well named. Its long nose looks Re an elephant’s trunk.

Leafy sea dragons are odd-looking, too. Their spiky fins make them look like pieces of seaweed.

A gulper eel looks just like a huge mouth with a long, tapering tail attached to it. It can open its mouth wide enough to swallow a fish much larger than itself.

A flounder has both eyes on one side of its body. And let’s not forget the glass catfish. You can see its insides.

These are just a few of the strange fish that live in the world. Which do you think is the most fantastic?
