(NEW YORK POST) – A Tasmanian woman has shared her incredible find on the sand at Bruny Island, mistaking an almost completely transparent fish for a piece of seaweed. “I was pretty surprised to see a little eye on it,” she wrote on Facebook.
“Honestly how is it see-through, where’s it brain, or anything inside for that matter,” another commented on the post. ”I’m so confused but so fascinated.”

Biologist at Macquarie University Professor Culum Brown said the peculiar fish was larvae from a species of eel that “hatch way out in the ocean and are initially part of the plankton.”
