it's a neat shot. It reminds me of the bottom of the ocean.

You must have gotten them to stand still for a while. As you know a rolling stone gathers no moss.
Well done.

This unique fish, that walks on its hands, was declared an endangered species in 1996, and only intense scientific research has saved its life.

But its near extinction could be ringing the warning bells about much wider and more serious environmental problems.

There's only one place where the Spotted handfish has been found. In the Derwent Estuary and a few adjoining bays near Hobart in Australia.

Originally called the walking fish, it was one of the first fish documented from Australian waters, and there used to be plenty of them.

By 1996, their numbers had declined to such an extent that they were declared an endangered species, the first Australian marine species to be threatened with extinction.
