It looks like a snotklat, but have incredible abilities:
Dybhavsfisken 'snailfish' (sneglefisk, red.) survive the immense pressure deep beneath the ocean's surface thanks to its soft bones and an open skull.
It concludes a team of researchers in a new study in Nature Ecology and Evolution, writes Science.dk.
Sneglefiskene live in one of the most harsh environments on Earth - namely, 6 to 11 kilometers below the sea surface.
Here is a really high pressure, dark, cold, and sparingly with the food, writes The Independent.
The fish, which the scientists studied, had almost transparent skin and bloated belly, as you can see in the picture at the top. The fish also had soft bones and partially open skull unlike their related species at low tide.
They studied the fish lacked a particular gene, which regulates the vævsmineralisering and skeletal development, and what scientists believe is the reason sneglefiskens soft skeleton. the
Also it open the skull has a function: It protects the brain, so that it is not squeezed out of the skull under deep sea enormous pressure.
And even though you would not believe it from the picture of the little slimy fish, is actually in the top of the food chain in areas such as the mariana trench, the world deepest oceangrav. Here is the a dominant predator and one of the most common fiskefamilier. the
