Thanks to Ivan for the final Unreferenced Animals suggestion. Here’s his description of a roughback batfish: It’s a flat (horizontally) fish, that walks along the bottom of the ocean using its short stubby fins… looks kinda like a crab actually… sort of. It’s defining feature are big red lips. The rest of the face kinda continues up from the lips and looks like somebody glued a hammerhead sharks head to the lips, with eyes that are not sticking out all that far.
So with that in mind, here’s my illustration:
And here’s what they actually look like:
What a weird looking fish. I think my illustration ended up way different than the reality. Mine doesnt look nearly unhappy enough.
