A Fish with tubular eyes and transparent head

Video Description
Researchers at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute recently solved the half-century-old mystery of a fish with tubular eyes and a transparent head. Ever since the (barreleye) fish Macropinna microstoma was first described in 1939, marine biologists have known that its tubular eyes are very good at collecting light. However, the eyes were believed to be fixed in place and seemed to provide only a (tunnel-vision) view of whatever was directly above the fish_s head. A new paper by Bruce Robison and Kim Reisenbichler shows that these 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.
