Ocean Sunfish

The ocean sunfish (Mola mola) or common mola is the heaviest bony fish in the world, with an average weight of 1,000 kilograms or about 2,200 lbs. It resembles a fish head without a tail, and its main body is flattened laterally. Sunfish can be as tall as they are long, when their dorsal and anal fins are extended. Specimens up to 3.2 m (10.5 ft) in height have been recorded.
