Wildlife: Fish (Mud-Puppy?)

This is a photo of a very strange fish that one of my son's buddies caught. I'm not completely sure, but I think that this fish may be called a mud-puppy. It was caught in an Alabama river.

Looks awfully like a mud- skipper. I've seen wildlife documentaries about the Everglades and places that have mangroves. They slide around and bury themselves in the mud as well as being in the swamps and water.

We call them 'hell benders' in Ohio. They are creepy looking aren't they? I saw a 9 inch long one in the Ashtabula River (behind my house). I'm not sure how big they can get, but that's big enough!

Hahaha, no wonder they call them Mud-Puppies, or Mud-Whatevers, if they dive around in the mud. Wicked looking critters, aren't they?
