"Faceless" Fish - BIODIVERSITY
Scientists in Australia studying never-before-explored parts of the ocean discovered a fish that appears faceless—a species that was only seen once before, over a century ago.
The fish, which was first found off the coast of Papua New Guinea in 1873, was spotted a second time during the scientists’ expedition near Australia's eastern seaboard, 2.5 miles below the ocean surface. It doesn't have any eyes, and its mouth is underneath its body, giving it the appearance of not having a face.
