I think they look very graceful and not at all like fish!

It doesn't look like it's of this world at all

yet some people claim you never see evidence of what looks like "intermediate" stages in evolution. They should look at this, and consider penguin's wings, et., etc., oh and men's brains, perhaps...

Come back in a few million years and the frogfish will be performing ballet, and men might have learned how much beer is sufficient.

Absolutely Andrew. I think you're right about the frogfish doing ballet but man learning what a sufficency of beer? I doubt it somehow!
