ichthyologist:

Oceanic Sunfish (Mola mola)
The oceanic sunfish is known to bask flat on the ocean surface. It has theorized that this behavior may be a method to ‘thermally recharge’ itself before diving to deeper depths. Seabirds have also been observed to land on the sunfish and pick parasites off its body whilst in this position.

The TOPP Program has tagged several of these.  They look so sad rolling their eyes and sculling their fins and gawping while the tag is being attached.  I’ve been informed by a biologist doing the tagging that they’re covered with vile-smelling mucous that’s almost impossible to wash off your gloves.
