Adorable Fish

This fish is a Pacific Spiny Lumpsucker and it is adorable! It has a very round body and tiny, little, pectoral fins that it tries to use to swim. This fish doesn't swim very well, but its pelvic fins have evolved to function like suction cups that enable it to attach itself to a rock on the ocean floor which is where it spends most of its time. While on the ocean floor, it eats small crustaceans and makes the funniest facial expressions. It almost looks like a little fish Pokemon, lol.

      Thanks. I didn’t know what that fish was next to it even though I thought that it looked neat too.

      It’s so cute! I can’t imagine that it has an easy time evading predators though.
