A. Hammer-head Shark (Sphyrna zygaena). = smooth hammerhead (Sphyrna zygaena)
The smooth hammerhead (Sphyrna zygaena) is a species of hammerhead shark, and part of the family Sphyrnidae. Sphyrna zygaena is named "smooth hammerhead" because of the distinctive shape of the head, which is flattened and laterally extended into a hammer shape (called the "cephalofoil"), without an indentation in the middle of the front margin (hence "smooth").

B. Tailed Sun-fish (Mola lanceolata). = ocean sunfish (Mola mola)
The ocean sunfish or common mola (Mola mola) is the heaviest known bony fish in the world. The ocean sunfish is native to tropical and temperate waters around the globe. Mola mola resembles a fish head with a tail, and its main body is flattened laterally.

C. Halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus). = Atlantic halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus)
The Atlantic halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus) is a flatfish of the family Pleuronectidae. Hippoglossus hippoglossus is among the largest teleost (bony) fish in the world.

D. Tope (Eugaleus galeus). = school shark (Galeorhinus galeus)
The school shark (Galeorhinus galeus) is a houndshark of the family Triakidae, and the only member of the genus Galeorhinus. Common names of Galeorhinus galeus also include tope shark, soupfin shark, and snapper shark. Galeorhinus galeus is found worldwide in temperate seas.
