We’re not sure about you, but if we were scuba diving and this gigantic fish swam up next to us, we’re not sure what we would do! This prehistoric-looking animal is actually called a mola mola, or sunfish.

They are deepwater fish that are characterized by their flat body, tiny fins, and lack of a normal tail. Pretty much, they look like strange fish heads. They are also known to be the heaviest bony fish in the entire world, weighing upwards to 2,000 pounds!
