    my fave fish: the ocean sun fish, the most awkward looking thing in the ocean

  • Kelly Jacobs

    The ocean sunfish, Mola mola, or common mola, is the heaviest known bony fish in the world. It has an average adult weight of 1,000 kg (2,200 lb). The species is native to tropical and temperate waters around the globe. It resembles a fish head with a tail, and its main body is flattened laterally. Sunfish can be as tall as they are long when their dorsal and ventral fins are extended.

This ridiculous looking fish is often ridiculed by sea lions. The sea lions can't really eat them due to their extremely tough skin. Instead, they bounce them back and forth like a volley ball. "Mom the sea lions used me as a frizbee again waaaahhhh" *ridiculous fish

The Sawfish, a ray, is an Elasmobranch and like its fellow group members (sharks, rays and skates) has a cartilaginous skeleton. It uses its saw (characterized by toothlike structures called denticles) for defense and for feeding by slashing its saw from side to side along the ocean floor, dislodging prey and likely by slashing through schools of fish, stunning or injuring them before consuming them via the ventral mouth. The largest species has been documented to weigh in at over 5,000lbs. Sawfish were revered by the Aztecs as "Earth Monsters". #Sawfish #Marine_Biology
