Caption: Flounder (Bothus sp.). Flounder undergo metamorphosis during their development. When they are born, flounder have one eye on either side of their body. As they grow, one eye migrates to the other side of the body so that both eyes are together. After metamorphosis flounder are able to lie flat and camouflaged against the seabed. Flounder are ambush predators, feeding on small fish and crustaceans.
