•About this Critter: Not many fish around lately??? – That's because the "Duckfooted‑dum‑dum" has been scared away thanks to noisy game hunters. ‑ Fish decide its spawning season only when this creature plays its back like a drum. – it is worth note: despite the name, its not an insult "dum dum" more likely refers to the drumming sound its tails makes as it beats its back. - it is very timid, usually avoiding humans. ‑ it appears to be semi amphibious having scales, but oddly, it has no mouth, so if the drumming is meant to attract fish, there's no explanation for what benefit to the creature!

• History: the dum-dum appeared in [1922] "YARNS OF THE BIG WOODS" - https://www.newspapers.com/clip/65229388/1922-08-03-yarns-of-the-big-woods-the/
