Despite this, not many people know about their amphibious natural history, so I did a series of experiments and crowd-sourced information to learn more about this unusual species. I will not say much about this project until it passes peer review to ensure my science is sound, but our findings

While doing experiments at the University of Florida’s Tropical Aquaculture Lab, a person came in to warn me that one of my catfish got out, and that I need to be more careful about my invasive species getting loose.
