“We are here to honor heroes who lost their lives in the line of duty—men and women who put themselves in the way of danger, so that the rest of us could live in safety. They were beat cops, deputies, detectives, correctional and forest service officers, federal agents, and tribal police. But to many here today, they went by different titles: Caring husband, loving wife, my son, my daughter, Mom, Dad.” —President Obama at the National Peace Officers' Memorial Service: http://go.wh.gov/MaN9h5

Mudskipper: Walking Fish 
A diferencia de la mayoría de los peces, saltarines del fango pasan gran parte de su vida fuera del agua! Cómo lo hicieron? Mudskippers son el pescado y lo que tienen branquias. Una vez fuera del agua, sus branquias comenzará a secarse y permanecer juntos, por lo mudskippers tener una cavidad especial detrás de las orejas, donde se almacena el agua de mar. A medida que giran los ojos, se aplica presión a la cavidad y este reoxygenates el agua almacenada, lubrica las aletas branquiales y restaura las branquias para su función normal. 

Ojos mudskipper son notables! Estos peces anfibios como tienen ojos grandes montados en la parte superior de sus cabezas. Esto permite una fantástica vista panorámica. Los ojos están protegidos por una capa clara de la piel. Como no tienen conductos lagrimales para mantener sus ojos húmedos, que alternativamente rodar sus ojos hacia atrás en sus órbitas! 

Mudskippers han altamente modificado grandes aletas pectorales (frontal) que se utilizan como las piernas. En lugar de la natación como la mayoría de los peces, saltarines del fango utilizan sus aletas pectorales para caminar sobre tierra y bajo el agua.
