Eyes on the same side of the head

The Lemon sole looks weird with its eyes on the same side of its head. But it is practical. This way, the fish can lie down burrowed into the bottom and still see what's going on around it. Flatfish usually have eyes on the right or left side of the head. The Lemon sole is a right eyed flatfish.
