A diver in Bali, Indonesia, encountered the rare animal pacing the seafloor at night. He spotted a strange a fish that appears to be walking across the seafloor on a pair of legs and captured video that’s left scientists scratching their heads. National Geographic posted the fascinating video to YouTube on Monday. The footage shows an orange-hued fish with two small, arm-like protuberances that make it appear to be a walking fish. Those spiny “legs” near the front of its body are actually hunting aids used to locate prey. According to National Geographic, researchers agree the fish is most likely a venomous stingfish from the Minous genus of stonefishes. The mystery lies in exactly what kind of stingfish it is. There are 12 recognized species in the Minous genus and many of them look alike.
