So you’ve got this fish. And it’s got eyes on either side of its head, like any normal, self-respecting fish should have. Then you decide to start keeping it on the seafloor, where it can lie flat on its side and camouflage in the sand. Smart move! But now one of its eyes is on the ground!You could just make your fish a new body that’s oriented flat-wise, like a stingray’s. You could do that. Or you could take the fish that’s born vertical and, during its most vulnerable developmental years, slowly move one of its eyes across to the other side of its head until the poor bastard looks like something Pablo Picasso dreamed up after a scuba-diving accident. 

As if puberty weren’t bad enough already. Thanks a lot, evolution.
