Balaya

Balaya, or ribbonfish as they are more commonly known, can be best described as a transparent fish that glows in the dark. At first glance, it may seem like someone dropped some Aqua color paint into the ocean and this is what we got. But no, these animals are very real and even though their behavior might be quite strange at times, they are certainly fascinating to watch. Balaya, or ribbonfish as they are more commonly known, can be best described as a transparent fish that glows in the dark. At first glance, it may seem like someone dropped some Aqua color paint into the ocean and this is what we got. But no, these animals are very real and even though their behavior might be quite strange at times, they are certainly fascinating to watch. Balaya can grow up to a meter in length and weigh around 18kg. They have a streamlined body that is mostly without scales. Their backs are dark purple-blue. Their lower sides and belly are silver and their eyes and mouth glow a bright yellow-green. The fish is outstandingly transparent - one can see all of its internal organs without any problems at all. It has light pink muscles, greenish liver, and even the heartbeats clearly visible through its gills as a green dot that seems to flicker as the heartbeats. Males are slightly larger than females and the reason for this size difference is location of testes - they are found right behind the kidneys so that they can fertilize eggs after being released into the water, where species spawns. All ribbonfish have poisonous spines around their gills and on top of their dorsal fin . The poison is not deadly to humans but it does cause excruciating pain. There are accounts of people who were stung by these animals and had to be hospitalized for days, receiving heavy doses of antibiotics to prevent infection. Balaya is a slow swimmer that lives at depths of up to 1,000m. It uses its bright glow to lure unsuspecting prey within its vicinity - mostly shrimps and small fish.
