Fact of the Day: Dolphin-Fish

While dolphins are mammals and not fish, there actually is a fish called a dolphinfish. Though most people would know it better by its Hawaiian name Mahi-Mahi which is typically what dolphinfish is called when served as seafood.

Yup, knew that. However, I wonder why they called it a dolphin fish. Hmmmm... I guess it does look like a dolphin.

Big ole fish like that is why I HATE swimming in open water. Just knowing I am in their space freaks me out.
