When Michael Pereria went diving recently off the coast of Portugal he probably never even imagined that he will record an incredibly rare footage. These divers encountered a gigantic sunfish who seemed to enjoy their presence and followed them for some time. They had a chance to make some spectacular images with this slow moving fish and it was definitely a once in a lifetime experience!
This fish is known as the world’s largest bony fish cause it can measure nearly 15 feet vertically, and reach lengths of about 12 feet. Ocean sunfish can be found in tropical and temperate oceans and if you thought that a 5,000 pounds animal is a fearsome predator, no it is not, it prefers feeding on sea jellies, small fish and plankton. Another interesting fact about it is that she never closes her big mouth!
Check out this bizarre fish!
