Certainly does not resemble the lake sunfish (bluegills, cherry gills, red-eyed bream, etc.) we catch around these parts! That's not only an extremely large fish ..ya gotta admit, it's kinda weird!

THIS FISH IS FROM THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE!!!!!

Scientists first thought it was an ocean sunfish commonly seen in the Santa Barbara Channel, but with the help of an online crowd-sourced animal identification site called iNaturalist, an expert based in Australia realized it was actually a hoodwinker sunfish and it was really, really rare.

Only one other sighting of the species has been confirmed in the Northern Hemisphere, a sunfish that was originally misidentified and stored in a museum after it was found on a Dutch Island in 1889.

Very interesting. Wonder why it died and found it's way on the beach?
