Generally they are white below and darker above, but they can turn various shades of gray, blue, green,orange and almost black; in fact they are called the chameleons of the sea because of their ability to change color to match the bottom on which they are found.

The Fluke reaches a weight of 26 lb, and is usually marked with dark spots (ocelli).

Like other species of flat fish, the Fluke have both eyes on one side of its head and, for characteristic it is able to rest on the ocean bottom and look up.

The flatfish is found in coastal waters from the southern gulf of Maine to Florida.
