Swell Shark

I thought these Swell Sharks were kind of cute. The texture of their skin looked to me like brushed felt. These were about a foot long but I understand they can get as big as four feet and they eat smaller fish or anything they can easily swallow. What was very interesting to me was that they were just all over each other.
And will you look at those eyes!

I'm not well versed with names of marine life and their species :P
I thought they were mud skippers or cat fish if I haven't read your introduction..haahha

They look pretty cool! If they were huge - even dangerous! But like that? Yeah, more cute!
