About the size and shape of a pencil, their lower bodies are in the sand while varying amounts of their upper bodies are above the sand. They wait for food to drift by. If you get too close, they will retract into the sand.
Splitfin Flashlight Fish (Anomalops katoptron) by California Academy of Sciences: The Flashlight fish has a pocket filled with bioluminescent bacteria below each eye. By flipping this pocket up and down, it can turn its flashlight on and off and spot prey deep in the ocean. http://www.wired.com/2014/12/academy-of-sciences-fish/#slide-id-1684161 #Fish #Flashlight_Fish
