this fish is incredible. the monterey bay aquarium just recently found the first live barreleye fish with it’s transparent dome head intact. those little black dots aren’t his eyes, those are his nostrils!! his eyes are inside the transparent dome! INSANELY COOL.

you can watch a video of the barreleye fish swimming around on the national geographic website.
