"The world is fixed, we say: fish in the sea, birds in the air.
But in the mangrove swamps by the Niger, fish climb trees and ogle uneasy naturalists who try unsuccessfully to chase them back to the water.
There are still things coming ashore

(Eiseley, 1957)

Themudskipper is a nonprofit website which provides scientific and popularised information on oxudercine gobies. Even though some advertisements of scientific books grace its pages, these fees for space go solely to website expenses, and are presenlty largely insufficient to cover them. Companies active in the same areas interested in advertising here may contact me for details.
