Flounder sizes typically vary from five to fifteen inches, though they sometimes grow as large as three feet in length.
Some flounders have a remarkable ability to change the color and color patterns of their surfaces to match the patterns and colors of the backgrounds on which they lie (Grzimek et al.
Except for the spiny flounders (Psettodidae), flatfish lack spines in their fins; all of the fin rays are soft (Grzimek et al.
Juvenile and adult flounders are eaten by a variety of predatory fish, as well as birds, seals, and sea lions (Grzimek et al.
The name "France" comes from Latin Francia, which literally means "land of the Franks" or "Frankland."
Sometimes the fluke, halibut, and plaice are types of flounder.
Flounder are ambush predators and their feeding ground is the soft mud of the sea bottom, near bridge piles, docks, and other bottom encumbrances; they are sometimes found on bass grounds as well.
