The animal of the day is the Black Dragonfish. (Did you know: The females are 8 times as long as the males! The ladies measure about 40 cm, the males about 5cm. Huge case of sexual dimorphism!
Like many deep sea fish, the black dragonfish can produce its own light. However, unlike almost all the other bioluminescent organisms in the ocean, it can glow and perceive a red as well as blue-green light.
Their babies are CRAZY, the eyes of the larvae are carried on long stalks that retreat as the fish reaches maturity and the eyes are nested in sockets.
