The peacock flounder is a bizarre fish that has adapted for life on the ocean bottom. It spends its early days swimming upright, but as it matures, one eye migrates to the other side of the fish and it becomes a flat bottom dweller. The peacock flounder has the perfect coloring to blend in with a white sand bottom. Its beautiful blue rings help it to become invisible in rippling blue tropical water. This truly unique fish flaps its way over the sand looking for food. When it stops, it becomes almost impossible to see!
