Title:
Oceanic Sunfish (Mola mola), Tetraodontiformes, Molidae
Mola Mola are from the same order as puffers and porcupine fish. The females can produce up to 300 million eggs in her single ovary. Sunfish do not harm people. They feed on jellyfish, salps, ctenophores and occasionally small crustaceans and fishes. This truly is one of the oddest fish in the sea. Both majestic and quirky, this fish has a prehistoric quality that conjures a time long ago. It is both whimsical and graceful.
