Imagine scuba diving in the quiet depths of the ocean and spotting an enormous shape emerging from the blue. This is what some divers faced when they approached a gigantic sunfish and began taking videos and photos while trying to contain their excitement for the rare size of the animal. This type of fish can weigh up to 5,000 pounds and grow to as much as 9 feet long, but luckily they don’t eat humans.
Despite its size, the fish looked pretty innocuous and actually seemed to enjoy its 15 minutes of fame when the divers took plenty of photos and recorded footage of the latest celebrity in the animal kingdom.
