Silver-lined mudskipper

I was waiting for a ferry in Fiji and spent the time exploring the shoreline. I turned over a rock and encountered this large mudskipper. When it didn't move I went back and got my camera. To my surprise he was still there. I ended up lying in the mud inching closer and closer. He didn't flinch.
