    how do these fat frickers catch anything?

      They catch easily-catchable prey like fish larvae and jellyfish. They're functionally moronic, plagued by skin parasites, and die if they spend too much time in cold water. Nature's perfect mistake.

        Brother they become disoriented and die if they go into water colder than 12C. That's pretty pathetic for a fish.

        What's it self defense? It looks like it has none and is the easiest meal a shark or orca could get. Like it seems it would be easily eaten alive with no effort on the predators part.

        Their skin is also very tough and covered in thick slime.

      Oh they die if they spend too much time at the wrong temperature? Truly the worst animal, no other animal is like that

          They spend most of the day hunting between 500-1000 meters, they get disoriented because they're cold blooded and need the sun to warm up between dives.

      It is so massively large that nothing but sea lions, orcas, and large sharks can seriously eat it. Actually, according to an article I just read, sea lions don't even actually eat the pieces they rip off, they just torture them because they're pricks. And they spend most of their time at such depths that their few predators cannot even reach them. Most of the time when they're killed, it's coming or going from sunning. Also, they lay millions of eggs at a time, so they really just try to brute force everything: too big to eat, too many to eat all of.

      But if an orca or large shark get a hold of a sunfish, they have no defenses.

        Are they poisionus like other puffers? do they have tetratoxin?
        they also look like they could dodge a predator by being able to corner tighter

      They're faster than you'd think and my god you just have no idea how big they are if you cut off both vertical fins and stood it up it'd still be taller than you.
      You try to frickin eat that thing. If you can't by the time it gets its mass moving it'll already have descended 10,000 leagues.

        Oh my god, they're so cute! And I'd have likely never said that of the bigger ones, especially the sunfish, the small ones are just reminding me of hard candy if It was punkish pearls and alive, lovely work of nature!

      Many fish are.
      Scripps aquarium in San Diego had a giant grooper that spent all day at the edge of the tank watching people. She had a massive tank but spent everyday at eye level at the closest part of her tank to the main aisle (her eyeballs were the size of golfballs). It was interesting to watch her watching people. She was aware of individuals and would float up or down so she could look adults or children directly eye to eye.

    They can jump out of the water and with their massive size they could hurt you bad if you are unlucky enough to be on the way.
