Most fish in the sea are considered to be bony fish, but this big boy is the king of them all. This huge creature is a Mola alexandrini ocean sunfish, initially it was believed to be a Mola mola, but recent research has helped to re-identify the animal. Sunfish are the largest bony fish known to man, and due to their size they grow into strange shapes - often resembling discs or wagon wheels.

While this huge fish holds the title as the world’s heaviest bony fish, the largest recorded catch was actually a M. alexandrini, or a southern sunfish, caught in 1996 off Kamogawa, Japan. It would seem that there are some very big boys out in the eastern sea.

These gorgeous stags are actually red deer or fallow deer who are suffering from a condition known as leucism that causes its hair and skin to lose its natural color. While these animals are mostly thought to be mythological creatures who appear in everything from Hungarian mythology to Harry Potter, they can actually be seen all over the world, you just have to keep your eyes peeled.

There aren’t a lot of animals with leucism in the wild, like albino animals their lack of pigmentation doesn’t do them any favors with predators. Still, some of these animals manage to survive even without their ability to blend in.
