Congratulations Mohammed, your Red Sea Moses sole is our Spotting of the Day:
"This quite extraordinary looking Red Sea Moses sole (Pardachirus marmoratus) is our Spotting of the Day! Like all other true soles (family Soleidae), the Red Sea Moses sole (also known as speckled sole) starts its life as a bilaterally symmetric larva, with an eye on each side of the head. Later in development, the left eye moves onto the right side of the head. Several species in the genus Pardachirus secrete a toxin as a defensive mechanism against predators such as sharks".
