Uhh... this fish has a transparent head! What in the actual WHAT??

YouTube video from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute shows the rarely seen Barreleye Fish, with a transparent head and tubular eyes. (Watch the weird fish below)

According to the YouTube caption:

The barreleye lives in the ocean’s twilight zone, at depths of 600 to 800 meters (2,000 to 2,600 feet). Its eyes look upwards to spot its favorite prey—usually small crustaceans trapped in the tentacles of siphonophores—from the shadows they cast in the faint shimmer of sunlight from above. But how does this fish eat when its eyes point upward and its mouth points forward? MBARI researchers learned the barreleye can rotate its eyes beneath that dome of transparent tissue.
