Fish with transparent head and rotating eyes

The Pacific barreleye fish has a has a see-through head. The dark circles on the front of its face are the fish equivalent of nostrils. The fish’s eyes are inside its transparent head. They look up, through its skin, to look for food above. And then sometimes they look forward, out of the front of its face.

See-through fish reminds us that nature is way, way weirder than we can cope with

Thanks to Jody Troupe for bringing this to the attention of the It’s Interesting community.
