Meet the fish that can walk, live without water for six days, and generally creep you out in a matter of seconds; the climbing perch.

The fish has spread across Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, and is believed to be advancing toward Australia, according to the Telegraph. It moves across dry land by dragging itself between waterholes, and scientists are warning that it might pose a threat to birds and marine life.

Sound scary? It gets worse. Apparently, it has been witnessed “swelling up when swallowed by larger predators, blocking their throats so they either choke or starve.”

Yikes.
