What it looks like when hips are swapped for pecs, hindfins become forefins, and vents really become ventral.

A peculiarity in the body plan of fishes seems to have been widely under-looked. This is that the pelvis of certain fishes has been brought up from where it belongs, near the vent and the start of the tail, to a position ‘above the shoulders’ in human anatomical terms. Imagine carrying your pelvic girdle on top of your shoulders and having your legs dangling above your arms. This is the sort of perversity that can go unnoticed in fishes.
