A clown frogfish (Antennarius maculatus) makes its ponderous way across the sea bed. Frogfish move using their modified pectoral and pelvic fins to walk along the floor as this one is, not unlike a biped's walking gait or they can make short "hops" In the case of the latter, they move their pectoral fins simultaneously forward and back, transferring their weight to the pelvic fins while moving the pectorals forward.
