    At the aquarium in Monterey, California they have these during August (Or some other month). I`ve seen so many as a kid visiting the aquarium, so seeing them dead or cut up is kind of depressing... X-(

    `...if it lives to adulthood, a sunfish can gain over 60 million times its starting weight: "the equivalent of a healthy, bouncing human baby growing to a weight equal to six Titanics".`

    OH NO, I`ve just acquired a little dent in my precious yacht. Nevermind the beautiful ocean creature I just killed.

    the fish probably could punch a hole in the hull and sink the yacht.
    and it could probably smash your bones apart as well...
    heck, the thing looks like a bullet.

    woah. i saw one of those in the lisbon aquarium. they are SO ugly. but they are cool. if you listen to the scuba diver breathing you can hear they`re breathing real quick. haha wow dont know what the point of that was. but anyways that picture on the boat looked so much bigger than the movie comparing the human and the fish.

    Sunfish are usually that big. It`s nothing really special.

    Still quite wonderful though.
