Psychedelic Fish On Groovy Trip
Found: A new species of "hopping" fish off the coast of Indonesia. Named Histiophryne psychedelica for its trippy appearance, the three-inch-long fish has baggy skin and zebra-like stripes radiating from its forward-facing eyes. But what makes it unique is the way it moves, say University of Washington researchers. The fish hops along the bottom of the sea on leg-like fins, jet-propelling itself forward by flushing water through little gill openings on its sides.
