Mudskipper

“Mudskippers are amphibious fish. They are of the family Oxudercidae and the subfamily Oxudercinae… Mudskippers typically live in burrows in intertidal habitats, and exhibit unique adaptations to this environment that are not found in most intertidal fishes, which typically survive the retreat of the tide by hiding under wet seaweed or in tide pools.” (wiki)
