Alien 7


Category: SKU: ALIENS7


Larval Flounder sp. ~2cm (species awaiting classification).
Fishy trivia – flounder, in their larval stage, have an eye on each side of the head just like normal fish. Its only upon settling to the seafloor as an adult that one eye migrates over to the other side (which we’d call “the top”, from our perspective). During their larval stage, we can see all their internal organs – being translucent can be an advantage when you’re hiding in plain sight. But if being translucent is an advantage…..why the yellow spots???? There’s often more questions than answers with these abyssal Aliens…..
