the eyes of peacock flounder (by Zé Eduardo…)
The eyes of this fish are raised up on short stumps like radar dishes, and can move in any direction independently on each other. One eye can look forward while the other looks backward at the same time. The baby flounders have one eye on each side of their bodies like ordinary fish, and swim like other fishes do, but later on, as they are becoming adult, the right eye moves to the left side, and flounders start to swim sideways, which gives them the ability to settle down flat on the bottom.
