Albacore Tuna

Albacore Tuna (Image from Wikipedia)

This is an albacore tuna. It grows to about 140 cm and weighs as much as 45 kg. In 1954, an albacore tuna crossed the Pacific Ocean. That was the first record of a fish swimming across an ocean. This fish's scientific name is Thunnus alalunga. Bye.

  2. Where's the animal for June 24th? Did it also swim off across the ocean?
