Mouths Full of Water

These are giant mud skippers and no they are not storing food in their mouths. They are holding water in their mouth and extract oxygen from the water. It's how they breath out of water and they walk too.
These two were like gangsters guarding their little pool of water and literally charging at others that came too close.They are so prehistoric when you look at these photos. I can imagine these creatures climbing out of the primordial ooze.These guys are big and not of the tiny garden variety.
