ichthyologist:

Tube-eye or Thread-tail (Stylephorus chordatus)

Found in deep subtropical and tropical waters around the world, the tube-eye lives in the shadowy depths during the day and makes nightly vertical migrations to feed on plankton. It is an extremely elongated fish: although its body grows only to 28 centimetres (11 in) long, it has a pair of tail fin rays that triple its length to about 90 centimetres (35 in). Its eyes are tubular in shape, resembling a pair of binoculars.
