Favorite thing:
I was practically jumping up and down when
I saw this fish. It was the first time in my life
that I met two of these remarcable creatures.

Mola in latin means : millstone
In dutch we call him : maanvis , moon fish
and in English they call him sunfish.
Only that is remarcable. Some see in him
a giant swimming head. They can weight
up to a 1800 kg. There are 4 species of these
sort of fish. I don't know wich this one is.
The 'L'oceanografic' was a little short
with information.

Sunfishes are very gentle fish who feed
on jellyfish, salps, ctenophores and
occassionally small crustaceans and fishes.
