For the first time, a large Pacific barreleye fish - complete with transparent head - has been caught on film by scientists using remotely operated vehicles at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. The deep-sea fish's tubular eyes pivot under a clear dome.

the seemingly endless diversity of life on this planet is enough to make a person watch a video with her mouth hanging open. wow.
It has a transparent head and somebody decided to call it a barreleye fish. Come on, science, get with the program.
I cannot wait to show it to my students in class on Monday!
Fantastic piece of evolutionary biology...thanks for posting!
Yeah, and it just happened to have a light inside its head, illuminating everything. I guess it had an idea while they were filming?

How fake can you get? See through heads! Ridiculous.
