Ask Dr. Unc

Pernille Disfunctione of Nunez, LA asks: What is a red lipped bat fish?

Dear Persille!

Well, there are so many kind of batfish in the depth, and the red lipped creature is very very rare. The head is like a bat, of course, but the tail is more like a huge boat propeller actually. It eats only killer whales. Now you probably think that this red lipped bat is huge huge to be able to eat a killer whale. But what is very special with this red lips, it only attacks the genitals of the male killer shark. The size of the genitals is perfectly matched with the lips. Evolution is so beautiful.
