This stargazer Uranoscopus scaber may not look handsome to some, but it sure has an inspiring common name :-)

It is actually an elegant and beautiful fish when observed in its natural element. In addition, it has an acoustic apparatus that produces acoustic as well as electric pulses.

The more one knows about just any animal species, the more one finds it interesting and fascinating. Judging based on physical appearance (out of water) cuts off the amazing universes behind.
