The red-lipped batfish - This fish, found around the Galapagos Islands, is mainly known for its bright red lips. As weak swimmers, batfish tend to crawl the ocean floor. When the batfish reaches maturity, its dorsal fin becomes a single spine-like projection (thought to function primarily as a lure for prey). - Reinhard Dirscherl / Bruce Coleman via Photoshot - TODAY.com

This is the rosy-lipped batfish (Ogcocephalus porrectus), the closest relative of the red-lipped batfish. They both look very similar. #weird #lipstick #fish
