The MOLA MOLA.
Has anyone ever crossed paths with one of these big fellas? (And by big fella I'm talking up to 2,250kgs or 5,000pounds)
Definitely something I you need to tick off your list Name: The Oceanic Sunfish orrrrr The Mola Mola #Natures
Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or a gazelle, when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.

Photographer Finally Snaps Perfect Shot Of Diving Kingfisher After 6 Years And 720,000 Photographs (7 Pics)
Wildlife photographer Alan McFadyen (@alanmcfadyen), from Scotland, recently managed to get that perfect shot he had ardently been trying to take for six whole years. He wanted to capture the exact moment when a kingfisher dived into water without causing so much as a splash. But this proved to be no easy task. Alan went to the same wild lake several times a week (100 days in a year on average) and doggedly took pictures of these magnificent birds.
It took 6 years, and over 700.000 shots. But he was determined to get it.
Alan in an interview stated that he spent more than 4,200 hours to click that amusing shot. In the start, he used to click photographs 5 times a week and later he almost lived there in the hides.
