 Ocean Sunfish or Mola mola

Looking much like the Elephant Man, the Ocean Sunfish is truly an odd character. The scientific name of the Sunfish is Mola mola. A large pelagic fish species, individuals can achieve weights of over 3000 pounds. Molas feed exclusively by slurping up large quantities of plankton such as jellyfish and salps. The first impression of a Sunfish underwater is that of a huge fish that is all head and no tail.
