This is a red-lipped batfish. It is most likely a male

You may think red lips are only for girls or Halloween, but there is one animal that has those bright red lips. The Red-Lipped Batfish is one of the most unique animals you will ever see. Not only does it have red lips, it lives under water and is apart of the Ogcocephalidae family. But they can’t swim. The only way they can get around is walking on the ocean floor. And the reason they have red lips isn’t because they are born with it its because the males use it to attract females.
