Bubble-head fish

Here's an article about a bizarre fish with a clear dome for a forehead:

(Don't ask for one of these in the Aquarium - people wouldn't believe it!)

Thanks for posting this Jim! I am someone who greatly appreciates the obscure absurdities of life forms in general, and fish in particular In fact, my kids used to refer to one of my aquaria as the "Ugly Fish Tank" mainly because of some interesting plecostami, among others.

The pictures of the barreleyes were good, but the video was awesome!

How about a Psychedelic bouncing fish to go along with the Bubble Head.

hey...if we can't have a crystalhead fish...how about one of these new "Psychedelica" fish?

"A kind of frogfish overlooked for years and then rediscovered in the wild in 2008 has now been officially named as a new species. Its broad, flat face with forward-looking eyes, among other body features, and its DNA distinguish it from other Histiophryne frogfish, researchers report in the journal Copeia.

It behaves unusually too, for example squirting out little jets of water that propel it along in irregular, arcing hops.

What earned the fish the species epithet psychedelica are the swirling stripes. Sports divers spotted it as a novelty off Indonesia’s Ambon Island in 2008 and sent pictures to Ted Pietsch of the University of Washington in Seattle. The images jogged his memory of two faded, damaged frogfish specimens from Bali he had been storing since 1992. Reexamining their almost white bodies, Pietsch could detect traces of once-glorious stripes like those of fish at Ambon documented by photographer David Hall." — Susan Milius

sound fun?
