About the Psychedelic Frogfish

Primarily named for its unique tie-dye like skin with pink and white stripes arranged as a finger print, the Psychedelic fish, is a very peculiar marine animal. Also known as the Frog fish, the Psychedelic fish, conducts an unusual action of using its lower fins to hop and crawl along the ocean floor- a characteristic never seen before in other fish. In addition, its back fin is uniquely twisted to the side making it difficult for the fish to swim straight ahead.
