This must be the strangest fish (YouTube video) I've seen so far:
Macropinna microstoma: A deep-sea fish with a transparent head and tubular eyes (press release by Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute).
The greenish globes inside the head are the eyes. The black spots at the front are the fish equivalent of "nostrils".
The video was removed from YouTube but can now be found at the press release link[/edit]
