A Rare Sunfish Encounter Caught on Video

Considering the size of sunfish it’s strange to think that they are a rare sight for divers, but the mega-sized fish spend most of their lives in the open ocean. Luckily, these divers were able to capture their unique interaction on video. According to Earth Touch’s youtube account, “This rare footage of a gigantic sunfish was captured on film by photographer Miguel Pereira off the coast of Portugal. The huge creature dwarfs the divers as it swims past. The slow-moving fish and clear water allow for some spectacular close-ups of this amazing animal.”
