Bizarre Walking Fish Is Not a Transitional Form

Some fish are bizarre creatures (see photo here). They might choose to walk on the ocean floor instead of swimming.

But they don’t have legs and cannot thrive on land.

Mudskippers, for instance, would dry up and die if they were to live exclusively on land.

The assumed transition from sea to land doesn’t work, either, as evolutionists will acknowledge that Tiktaalik roseae was not the earliest creature to step on land.
