9-foot 'monster' washes ashore

A sunfish washed ashore in new Zealand.

Sunfish have reportedly washed ashore at least twice in the last four years, and a marine specialist said this occurrence was a "real oddity" due to the time of year.

"The literature says they can be found in New Zealand's northeastern waters in warm summers, and they can stray south of Cook Strait. But this is definitely not a warm summer, rather a cold spring," said the DOC's Andrew Baxter.

Hmmm. Maybe that's why it's dead.
