Viewers rightfully lost their collective minds yet again this week as Blue Planet revealed a fish with a see-through skull.
That’s right, the ocean is weird.
Catching a glimpse of the barreleye fish – or ‘spookfish’ – which has a transparent, jelly-like forehead, is a swift reminder of why we should all stay away from the deep waters off the Pacific Coast of America.
Discussing this extraordinary fish in Sunday night’s episode, Sir David told viewers that the unique features allow the fish to look ‘up through its skull’.
It basically has swivelling eyes that can face forwards or look directly upwards through its transparent, fluid-filled, dome-shaped forehead.
Not that that explanation will stop people from freaking out.
Just take a look at the melt-down on Twitter.
One user described the discovery as ‘jaw-dropping’, and another wrote ‘I’m sorry, what !?’
‘A fish with a transparent skull!!!! What in the world!!! I am shook!!!’ posted another social media user.
One user wasn’t shy to admit that they attempted to see if they had similar abilities as the barreleye fish.
They wrote: ‘Did anyone else just try to see if they could look up through their skull like that see-through jelly head fish on #blueplanet ?’

You might be fascinated to know that filming for Blue Planet II took over four years and saw the crew visit 39 countries in the process.
