Te Papa recently received a rare sunfish specimen from Auckland Museum. While our scientists busily prepare the sunfish to be preserved, we want your help to come up with a name for this amazing creature.
We are running a competition to find a name for our sunfish - and all classes can enter. The prize is a chance to see some of our Natural History collection that is not on display and used by reserachers from around the world.
Your class is invited to suggest a name and be in with a chance to win. Entries are limited to one per class.
Did you know that sunfish are the heaviest bony fish in the world? Te Papa's blog has a more information about these fascinating fish!
