This Always Sad-Looking Sea Toad Will Melt Your Heart

Sea toads aren't incredibly fast-moving fish, but when they do maneuver themselves about, they have some pretty impressive moves.

One featured in a video taken approximately 50 miles west of Wake Island by NOAA's Okeanos Explorer crew shows off a bit of what it can do.

Among the notable skills displayed are instant deflation and standing on one foot.

The fish also has a great talent for building suspense, as it stands prepped to swim away for quite a while before actually doing so.

It doesn't stay afloat for long.

Once it finds a good place to rest, the sea toad positions its feet below its body and readies for landing.

The footage was gathered as part of NOAA's Deepwater Wonders of Wake mission.
