The Mystery of the Barreleye Fish

In the Pacific Ocean, there lives a fish that’s… a little different.

The Pacific barreleye fish is one the weirdest creatures lurking deep in the ocean. Named after its eyes that are literally shaped like barrels, the species’ most unique trait is the completely transparent head. Although known to scientists since 1939,  it was photographed alive only in 2004.
