Barreleye: Fish With Transparent Head


Recommended Posts

G'day fellow Raiders, :1fishing1:

I was trawling through news online today, and came across this interesting article:

With a head like a fighter-plane cockpit, a Pacific barreleye fish shows off its highly sensitive, barrel-like eyes--topped by green, orblike lenses--in a picture released today (23/02/2009) but taken in 2004.

There is short written piece with links to further information, plus a short video of footage of the elusive Barreleye. Check it out!

How amazing is the ocean. Very cool Hodgey.son.

:dito: Very interesting post Hodgey jnr! :thumbup:! The transparent head on that fish looks almost human and like a breeding experiment from people from out of space. It would be good if they can be trained to be a hardbody that seeks out and head butts the biggest flathead for your Dad :D
