This awesome creature is a Leptocephalus and it might just be the most perfectly transparent animal we’ve ever seen. According to all-knowing virtual guru that is Wikipedia, “Leptocephalus (meaning “slim head”) is the flat and transparent larva of the eel, marine eels, and other members of the Superorder Elopomorpha.”
We think they might also be secret underwater superheroes.
