What kind of fish is this? Looks prehistoric. Just saw this on Butterfly Beach. Amongst all the Sea Pickles. My pup kept eating the Pickles!

Yup... Mola Mola or Sunfish.

1) Cool find.--------------2) Don't allow your "pup" to eat things on the beach. That's just asking for trouble.

It's the "exoskeleton" (really just thick cartilaginous skin) of an Ocean Sunfish.

I think you are right, also called a Mola Mola.

It’s a Spindly Bluefish. Excellent pan-fried with garlic!

4:48 pm--If we knew the answer to that, there would be a lot less suffering in the world!

I think it has something to do with a research paper put out by Steins/Faber in 2017 (might have been 2018) about how certain people have a lack of the steroid M-PnR, which causes them to have trouble telling the truth, so instead they make up crazy stories with no basis in reality. Check it out; it’s an interesting study.

Some people never post anything even remotely truthful. Why is that?
