Flying Gurnard

The flying gurnard is known for its extremely large pectoral fins that resemble wings. These fish are found in the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico where they move along the sandy bottom using the finger-like projections on the ends of their fins. They feed on crustaceans and clams.
