Sca-ry. But sad when they choke on plastic bags. I hope people don`t throw any more plastic bags in the oceans as seeing as many animals of these kind would go away...

I don`t see this thing swimming at `high speeds` anytime soon. >>;

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

Still quite wonderful though.

Till it was dead...

Then it sucked.

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.

omgwtfho:
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.

You seemed to have missed my point. That`s ok. *pat pat*

Now THAT is a big fish... and ugly too. You could beat that thing with an ugly stick and it`d probably look better.

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

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-(
