February 23, 2009--With a head like a fighter-plane cockpit, a Pacific barreleye fish shows off its highly sensitive, barrel-like eyes--topped by green, orblike lenses--in a picture released today but taken in 2004.
The fish, discovered alive in the deep water off California's central coast by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), is the first specimen of its kind to be found with its soft transparent dome intact.

That pic has to be CGI. The lighting just looks wrong to be a real pic, not to mention the cartoonish look to the photo. Even its brain looks fake.
Prove me wrong. If it is real then great.

Im not sure, ive never seen a fish move like that, it still looks fake, but then again ive never seen a fish with a head like that. This is possibly a really good find and a very strange fish. Anyone else feel like poking the transparent bit to see what happens.
