The Flashlight Fish

The animal of the day is the Flashlight Fish. (Did you know: That cool glowing effect is actually the result of  luminescent bacteria that the flashlight fish keeps  in a pocket under it’s eye! It can rotate this pocket around to direct the light, and uses it at night when looking for food!
