    “Pancake Batfish”

    It has been recently discovered in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, in the region affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.. They live on the bottom, covered in sand. The fish are flat, resembling pancakes.

    This tiny creature,”Halieutichthys intermedius” amazingly uses its fins like feet to walk across the ocean floor.They inhabit a subtropical, sandy, reef-associated, and a deep environment.
