This fish is so black that it becomes invisible
In the darkness of the seabed, the king of camouflage is the king of the abyss. The fish Chauliodus macouni absorbs 99.5% of the light that touches it. His skin reflects only 0.5% of the light. This biological characteristic allows it to be almost invisible to the eyes of its predators. For comparison, this fish is 20 times darker than the black objects of our daily life.
