Crazy Ass Fish

It's a little too late in the night and too late in my education to adequately explain the science behind this, but check out this wonder of science called the barreleye fish. According to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, the fish's "unusual eyes can rotate within a transparent shield that covers the fish's head. This allows the barreleye to peer up at potential prey or focus forward to see what it is eating."
