Sea Robins are a family of bottom-feeding fish, and they are the superheroes of the fish game. They get their name from their large pectoral fins, which, when swimming, open and close like a bird’s wings in flight. The large surface area of the fins also permits the fish to glide short distances above the water surface like a flying fish. Sea Robins have an unusually solid skull, and many species also possess armored plates on their bodies.  When caught, they make a croaking noise similar to a frog. That’s just freaky, man. Sea Robins also have six spiny “legs”, three on each side of their bodies. These legs are actually flexible spines that were once part of the pectoral fin, and they help the fish search for food on the ocean floor. Check out that video down below to watch a Sea Robin strolling around like an undersea boss. To reiterate, Sea Robins can swim, walk, and freaking fly. Anywho, Sea Robins.

Glass Frogs have a translucent abdomen. Seriously, you can see through it. The Glass Frog is native to South America, but it doesn’t matter because the only thing anybody cares about is that you can see through it’s abdomen. Anyho, kids, Glass Frog.
