Mudskippers

Mudskipper are members of the subfamily Oxudercinae (tribe: Periophthalmini), within the family Gobiidae (Gobies).

While most marine fish live in intertidal habitats, surviving the retreat of the tide by hiding under wet seaweed or by using temporary tide pools, mudskippers are uniquely adapted to a completely amphibious lifestyle.
