There may be a new threat to wildlife in Queensland, Australia.
Using their sharp gills, Climbing Perch can move between waterholes by pulling themselves up onto dry land.
But the spines that help them “walk” can be a danger to other animals when they are eaten by other species and become lodged in the throat of the preying animals.
Climbing Perch can allegedly survive on land for up to 6 days.
Experts are urging Bio-security Queensland to continue research.
