"On the evening of 11/6/2015 in the Gulf of Mexico, Venice Florida Inlet I saw a fish that looked very similar to the pictures of the African Butterfly fish. It was at the shoreline of Snake Island which is located close to the Inlet, just hovering. At first I thought it was a large bug then it started to move with fins that resembled butterfly wings when a wave carried it on the shore it flipped and flopped extremely fast to get back to the water. At first I thought it was a type of shrimp because it looked kind of like them when its wings were folded in while it was on shore. Another wave pushed it further up and it was flopping for its life, so I took a clam shell and flipped it out into the water. I would like to know what type of fish it could have been, I have never seen anything like this little 3' fish."
