Flounders are super cool fish! They are often called flat fish. Their eyes are on top of their flat bodies and the mouth looks pretty funny too. The Peacock Flounder changes color to camouflage from their predators and prey, and when they are blended in, they are tough to spot. It’s really fun to watch them swim, they skim along the bottom of the ocean. Peacock Flounders can be very colorful and are also known as flower flounders. They hunt at night but you can see them during the day as well.
