They’ve got legs… and they know how to use them.
Holdouts who still like to deny the miracles of evolution might want to skip the cool little mangrove reserve in Tarakan. The place is literally crawling with ikan tempankul, walking fish that hop, skip and jump their way across the mangrove mud flats. We’ve seen mudskippers before in other mangrove forests, but Borneo’s seem to be an evolutionary step ahead of all the others. Simply amazing – almost as good as the pygmy seahorses we saw in Malapascua.
