Habitat

San Diego Zoo

The Mexican Walking Fish lived in the Mexican lakes of Chalco and Xochimilo, which were unfortunately drained out a couple years ago, making them endangered.

Females lay 300-1 000 eggs in the spring. The eggs then hatch in 2-3 weeks.

If they spend too much time in shallow water, their gills will be sucked in, and they can use them to breath above water! Amazing!
