The sunfish species is known as one of the most popular examples of bony fish. This group of fish is referred to as bony because their skeletons are mainly consisted of bone tissue instead of cartilage like in most fish. You have probably seen what a sunfish looks like before, and it is quite difficult to forget their strange shape. They kind of look like a frying pan with fins, so if you ever see something that could be described in a similar way, you're probably looking at one of the four species of sunfish.

Their name actually has a lot to do with their shape. This type of fish dives deep into the ocean (more on that later), then swims back to the surface of the water and floats on the side in order to warm up on the sun as quickly as possible, so that it can dive back into cold depths of the ocean again. We all know what it means when a fish is floating on the surface of the water, but when it comes to this one, you can relax since it is just sunbathing.
