Do You Know What Fish This is?

In the Wild: Do You Know What Kind of Fish This Is?

Although you might think this species spends a good amount of time at the surface, these fish actually live mostly at depths of 700 to 2,000 feet underwater. Do you know what kind of fish this is?

To see the answer, just


It's not a shark, it's an Ocean Sunfish! Native to warm and tropical waters around the world, the Ocean Sunfish (also known as Mola Mola) are the heaviest known bony fish in the world, weighing in at up to 2,200 pounds. Surprisingly, despite their size, sea lions are one of their few natural predators!

You can see an ocean sunfish up close at only a few aquariums in the world, mostly found in Asia. Have you ever seen them?

Saw a couple of these in the aquariums in Japan. In Osaka, they had to put a net up so that it wouldn't bump into walls. The fish was so old it had become blind...
