Scientific Name: Mola mola
Size: It has been estimated that one Mola mola was over 3000 pounds.
However, the biggest Mola mola (length wise) recorded was over 11 feet tall!
Found in: All tropical waters
Diet: Jellyfish, small fish, and algae
Responce to Humans: When divers get the rare chance to see a Mola mola, the
sun fish become very curious of their visitors, not afraid.
enough, since the Mola mola has such a
large dorsal fin, they are often mistaken for sharks by humans. Better
safe than sorry, I suppose!
