Ocean sunfish (Mola mola)

The ocean sunfish is one of the heaviest bony fish in the world. The average of an adult is 1000 pounds. The length of its body can be up to 6 feet with the height of dorsal fin to ventral fin up to 8 feet. While they are descended from bony fish, they are mostly cartilaginous. This allows them to grow much larger than other fish. The spinal cord contains fewer vertebrae and is shorter than other fish. The sunfish also lacks a swim bladder. Its body is flattened laterally and resembles a fish head and tail. The tail is not a generic caudal fin but rather an evolution of the dorsal fin and anal fin fusing together. The body is usually varying shades and white and grey with the dorsal side being darker. The sunfish has the ability to change the skin coloration when stressed or under attack.
