Fish Are Coming Out of the Water to Pose for Me

A strange sight. I couldn't figure out what I was looking at for a minute. It was alive and just laying there quietly.

 

I think it is a Suckermouth Catfish. In this country, they are usually found in aquariums. They stick to the sides and clean them off. Sometimes people throw them into waterways.

 

Like Walking Catfish, they are an invasive species in our lakes. Must be they can come out of the water to feed like the Walking Catfish too.

 

Pretty spooky too. Maybe the advance guard for fish who have decided to take over the land area.
