This paper presents the designing and development of biological inspired inspection underwater robot. Inspection and monitoring activities have been applied in this project. Two medium involve in this project development. Land has been consider as a normal surface or medium with addition or been specialized in underwater region. Inspection activity is done using a camera at the front of the robot. The monitor display will be the user computer with addition of software and a converter to interface between camera and the computer. The ability to move can be controlled by the user. There are 7 servos been used with 8 segments been design including the head of the robot. The mechanism that been apply is side winding movement and the angle for servo is ±30 degree. The speed of the robot is 0.072 kmh-1 in land and 0.18 kmh-1 on water. This robot can capture and record using the software that been used to make the inspection activity runs perfectly
