Rare Photographs of Crazy Mora-Mora Fish

A very weird-looking fish that normally does not come above the surface was caught on film the other day off the coast of California. The yellow-lipped Mola-Mola has large dorsal fins that are often mistaken for shark fins.

The Mola-Mola lives at depths of 600 to 2,000 feet, which is why these photographs are rare.

See more images and a video of the Mora-Mora.
