Abstract Ambush predators possess the advantage of surprise and, when coupled with speed, are devastatingly successful. Speed and accuracy require adept sensory mechanisms, most commonly vision, and excellent vision usually requires large eyes especially among vertebrates. But evolution has found creative, often unique, solutions for the smaller vertebrates that survive in the highly competitive world of predation. The sandlance, Limnichthyes fasciatus, has just such a unique solution.
