The Mick Jagger Of The Sea

This is not a Photoshopped image, the fish actually looks like it is wearing lipstick. The rosy lipped batfish can be found near Cocos Island off the coast of Costa Rica (their relatives, the red lipped batfish, can be found near the Galapagos Islands). It is not known why the fish has such brightly coloured lips as they live in the murky depths of the sea (around 125ft) where colours can't be detected without an artificial light source. Read more about the funny looking fish here and here.
