Caption: Animals that live in the sand are referred to as 'psammophilic' or sand loving. Freshwater flounders are often found on sand and silt flats where they can bury down with very little of their bodies exposed. Often only their eyes are visible. They sit and wait for small invertebrates to come too close. This is an Amazonian Fresh Water Flounder (Family Achiridae, cf Achiropsis).
