  1. Mexican Walking Fish By: Madison Kendrick

  2. Their Environment • Live in Mexican lakes and ponds • Feed on insects, worms, and small fish • Find food by smelling and sucking it into their bodies like a vacuum • Can regrow parts of their bodies

  3. Why are they extinct? • People have been draining lakes, and waterways have been polluted by waste water coming from Mexico city.   • The Tilapia Carp eats the eggs of the Mexican Walking Fish • Also, poor water conditions • “The estimation of their population in 1998 used to be around 1,500 per square mile, but to this day, there are around 25 per square mile”

  4. How can we save them? • Preserve its habitat • Take the Tilapia Carp out of the waters
