No Big Fish Story Here

Barreleye Fish

Barreleye Fish

I just got out of our virtual tissues journal club and there was disagreement on whether or not the “Barreleye” fish pictured above was real. I was trying my best to be agnostic on the issues (especially given the CGI-ishness of the image). Turns out that it is real. This deep sea fish has a translucent head so that it can look in all directions in the darkness of the deep sea and snatch food from between the stinging tentacles of other deep sea life. Be sure to check out the movie.   Too cool.

Carolyn can add this one to the list of fish that Ann and I have definitely not eaten.

Also, Duke swept Maryland.
