Caption

Pancake batfish (Halieutichthys aculeatus). X-ray of a section through a pancake batfish, showing the thorn-like bony projections that encircle it's skull (centre-left) and follow the contours of its body near the tail (right). Batfish (family Ogcocephalidae) have flat wide bodies and feed by skimming for prey along sandy bottoms. Pancake batfish are found on sandy ocean bottoms from North Carolina, USA, to Brazil. This specimen measures 9.5 centimetres in length.
