They are laterally compressed fishes similar in appearance to rays, with a large circular, triangular, or box-shaped head and a small tail. The largest members of the family are about 50 centimeters (20 in) in length.
They are bottom-dwelling fishes, mostly found on the continental slope at depths between 200 meters(660 ft) and 1,000 meters (3,300 ft).
This fish typically lives in water depths, where a person like you and I, would never see them. SO TO FIND THIS FISH OFF THE DOCK WHERE I LIVE, IS A RARE FIND INDEED!
When I am not with my tutor, homeschooling, you will find me in and around the dock looking for interesting stuff. What I really like about Belize, is that all the animals here, are truly unique and different. I love seeing them, and reading about them.
Below are some pictures of bat fishes, for you to enjoy You can see Scuba diving with them, which is rare.
