Aquazone makes the ocean a manageable size

When I first looked at this screen capture from Aquazone, I thought I saw a sea turtle and a shark. But after consulting my handy guide, it turns out it's an ocean sunfish.

I thought of sunfish I ate as a kid, which were about the size of my hand. The ocean doesn't play around though. Ocean sunfish are the largest bony fish in the sea, getting up to 14 feet long and weighing in at nearly 5,000 pounds. This is according to the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey, CA. It should know; it was the first aquarium to keep one in captivity for any length of time. And it still does.

Check out Aquazone's Twitter feed for more cool underwater shots. It's a cool way to learn about another planet on Earth.
