Sole has an oval, elongated body with a rounded head. Its upper half is grey-brown, almost red with blurred dark spots. The under side of its body is light grey to white. Their lifestyle is typical of groundfish. They are mavericks, burying themselves in the ocean floor during the day and hunting at night. Sole's main food source is clams with thin shells, small crustaceans and the occasional smaller fish.
The sole is a gifted impersonator: To protect itself it imitates a male peter fish, an extremely venomous fish, that is avoided by other marine animals.
