No, it’s not Casper the friendly ghostfish. The Barreleye fish is an elusive deep sea creature. Until recently scientists didn’t know that it had a bizarre translucent head, then the beast was observed alive and caught on camera.

    He looks like a 2-liter bottle with an algae farm inside. The facial expression says “special”.

    But you know who else has a transparent skull? Braniac. So I'm not messing with this fish.
