Ratfish

Check out this deep-sea fish.  The huge eyes identify it as a denizen of the deep.  They always die when you drag them up to the surface -- the pressure differential is deadly.  Some of the really deep ones pretty much liquefy on the way up, a frustration for scientists who wish to study them.
