A new fish that crawls and yawns...

FoxNews reports a "University of Washington professor says a recently discovered fish that crawls instead of swimming and has forward-looking eyes like humans could be part of an entirely unknown family of fishes.
The creature sighted in Indonesian waters off Ambon Island has tan- and peach-colored zebra-stripping. It uses its leglike pectoral fins to burrow into cracks and crevices of coral reefs in search of food..."

Believe it or not...But the picture to the top left is a photo of the newly discovered fish yawning. It crawls and yawns.
