The Rock-Climbing Catfish

It's not very pretty, nor is it graceful, but Colombia's rock-climbing catfish has a unique ability among fish. Find out more on today's Creation Moments Minute.

The rock-climbing catfish's climbing equipment begins with a powerful sucker mouth. Once it has attached its sucker to the rock, it pulls up its stomach plate and anchors it. With its body anchored, it moves its sucker up the face of the rock and repeats the process. The fish can walk up a 20-foot rock wall in about 30 minutes!

Who gave the rock-climbing catfish that powerful sucker mouth? Who gave it such a clever bony stomach plate and the powerful muscles to control it? And who taught it to climb rocks? One opinion says that no one did it. The other says that it was the work of God. The Bible's claim of a Creator is the only one that makes sense!
