Anableps is the amazing four-eyed fish. It swims just below the surface of water and can see below and above the water at the same time. It has a retina on the upper part of the eye and another retina on the lower part of the eye.

Things above the surface focus on the lower retina, and things below the surface focus on the upper retina. The Anableps has no way to keep its eyes wet so it has to lower its eyes into the water often.

When we look at the anableps we are amazing at God’s creative genius.
