Yes without an "r"!

That's the Fish this Bull Shark is chomping on!
We normally feed Tuna heads but from time to time, we get a couple of these strange looking specimen - and the Bulls love them! Look at all the yummy Fish blood, a clear indicator for good Shark bait!

The beautiful and bizarre deep-water Fish is Lampris guttatus, colloquially referred to as Sunfish or Moonfish, one of two extant species in this genus. Not really rare but rarely caught by anglers, here's a fresh one caught in Mexico.
