About Walking Batfish
The walking batfish can grow to be up to 15 inches. Though batfish do not have scales, their skin is rough with bony tubercles. These tubercles are located on both surfaces of the tail and the upper surface of the body. To hide from predators, batfish will scurry away like a crab across the ocean bottom or bury themselves into the sand with their pectoral fins.
