There is also a wonderful resource on Mudskippers at
run by Gianluca Polgar, who was kind enough to point out two mistakes i made in this video:
- At min 1.43-1.49: that is a blenny of the genus Andamia, not a mudskipper.
- Not all mudskippers have fused pelvic fins that are used as suckers

Aside from calling a dolphin a fish - which i actually find kind of funny in context :)
