I recently checked out a book from the library for my son. It's Bill Nye the Science Guy's Big Blue Ocean. In it he lists several fish that are named after other animals. I thought it was kinda cool. I wish I could find pictures for all of them.

Alligatorfish
Birdfish
Boarfish
Buffalofish
Catfish
Crocodilefish
Dogfish
Elephantfish
Frogfish
Goatfish
Goosefish
Hawkfish
Horsefish
Lionfish
Lizardfish
Parrotfish
Porcupinefish
Rabbitfish
Sheepfish
Squirrelfish
Tigerfish
Toadfish
Viperfish
Wolffish
Zebrafish

whew..... I'm sure there are others!

No, no, no...

that is just a missing link. I mean, how else do we have flying fish?

What about when you buy fish online? Don't those fish fly? What I can't figure out is how they put their fins on the plane's controls....

I couldn't resist the birdfish...it looked way cooler than the real one.

and the zebrafish was just a tiny freshwater fish; not interesting at all.

The sheepfish is what's freaky! if you click the link you'll see a pic of one and they have teeth like a sheep! crazy.
