THE BARRELEYE FISH

We have known about the barreleye Fish for a while, but only recently have we gotten any pictures of this strange creature with a transparent head.  The two green organs you see inside its head are its eyes while the two orbs that appear where you would think its eyes should be are the equivalent of fish nostrils.

Although very little is known about this fish, scientists believe that it steals its food from the tentacles of jellyfish and so, having its eyes encased inside its clear head protects them from stings.
