Diet

Mudskippers prefer to eat worms, crickets, flies, meal worms, beetles, small fish and small crustaceans.

Fun fact

This species is known as the walking fish, using its pectoral fins to move across land.

Habitat

The Atlantic mudskipper is native to fresh, marine and brackish waters of the tropical Atlantic coasts of Africa.

Mudskippers are gill breathers, so a walk on the beach is a particular challenge. When mudskippers go walkabout, they take some water with them in their gill pockets. This water comes into contact with atmospheric air, which enriches it with oxygen. Absorbing oxygen through the skin and oral mucous membranes supports gill breathing.

Animal zone

Lagoon of Light

The Lagoon of Light is home to an array of colourful tropical fish, amazing corals and large mangrove trees.

Representing where the rainforests meet the reef, the lagoon reflects the diversity of aquatic life and unique habitats found in and around many of the islands and archipelagos in the western Pacific Ocean, from tropical North Queensland to the outer islands of Palau in Micronesia.
