Imagine if they had the ability to literally climb up a wall! Then it wound not be safe to put them in ponds or tanks with no covers! Some people make jokes that they climb up trees and they would go tree fishing lol!
Got to catch'em all! :D

While it can't really climb, its strong and sharp Gill cover makes it a better at 'walking' on land than say, snakehead or catfish.
