Learn about the ecology and biology of a fish that can stay out of water for 2 months, can actually drown, and jumps on land!
This amphibian-like fish lives in the mangrove swamps from Florida down to Brazil, and sometimes occupies crab burrows and logs.
If no partner can be found, the mangrove rivulus has nothing to fear - it will mate with itsself having one of the most bizarre reproductive strategies around!
