    Nope... not a wolf eel. They are cool creatures but their eyes aren't what I'd call spectacular. This critter however has one of the most beautiful U/W eyes (IMO.) It is like looking into another universe of colorful galaxies.

    Not a GPO either... though GPO eyes are really cool to look at.

    You don't say where the picture was taken. The eyes of pufferfish have those little flecks in them.

    Didn't think it looked quite right for balloonfish, but can't think of another fish who has speckled eyes like that...

    Here is the whole eye. This picture was taken yesterday at Cove 2 in West Seattle.
