The Butterfly of the Sea: Red Gurnard.

The Red Gurnard (Chelidonichthys spinosus)is one of 100 different species of Sea Robins, or Gurnards. These fantastic fish are normally found on the sea floor at depths of around 660 ft. They have a special set of ‘wings,’ which are actually just beautiful pectoral fins, that allow them to “fly” through the water. They also
possess six spiny feet that allow them to walk across the ocean floor in search of food.

Respect!!

Heroic Hugh Herr enjoys nothing more than scaling a cliff – even though both his legs were amputated after a disastrous climbing expedition when he was a teenager.
As if conquering a 200ft rock face wasn’t hard enough, one of his prosthetic legs fell off during his latest climb – but he calmly waited for it to be roped back up to him before making it to the top.
Mr Herr runs a lab making bionic legs at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and insists artificial limbs are an advantage.
