Mola Mola

The Ocean Sunfish (Mola mola) is the heaviest known bony fish in the world, with an average adult weight of 1,000 kg, measuring up to 3 meters long. It is a very rare sight... but in Oman we saw three individuals in two days - some as relaxed as the one in this image, being cleaned by a small school of bannerfish.
