A fish that would rather crawl into crevices than swim, and that may be able to see in the same way that humans do, could represent an entirely unknown family of fishes, says a University of Washington fish expert.

"Psychedelica" seems the perfect name for a species of fish that is a wild swirl of tan and peach zebra stripes and behaves in ways contrary to its brethren. So says University of Washington's Ted Pietsch, who is the first to describe the new species in the scientific literature and thus the one to select the name.

This amazing barreleye fish really does have eyes in the back of his head.

Accustomed to living in the pitch black of the deep sea, the animal has developed a unique and incredibly useful ability to spot predators trying to sneak up on it, as well as potential food - through its own head.

During its evolution, the Macropinna microstoma has developed so its head is transparent and its eyes are able to move themselves inside its own head to look out in different directions.
