The sea's equivalent of the Platypus.
Holy shit, so thats what that weird thing I caught was.
Neat, although apparently they aren't used as legs and are used to stir up the sea floor when looking for food.
Also, Pets of the Elder Gods tag please.

I went snorkeling for the first time a few weeks back and saw one of these things scuttling around. I would've done a spit take if I could've.

What part of the body plan are those "legs" ??
Are they fingers?
Or just overdeveloped shoulder hairs or something!?

s'ok wikipedia to the rescue..
Sea robins have six spiny "legs", three on each side. These legs are actually flexible spines that were once part of the pectoral fin. Over time, the spines separated themselves from the rest of the fin, developing into feeler-like "forelegs." The pelvic fins have been thought to let the fish "walk" on the bottom, but are really used to stir up food. The first three rays of the pectoral fins are membrane free and used for chemoreception.
Now show us a Sea Batman.
It looks like something out of Half-Life.
