    Photojournalist Daniel Botelho snapped this stunning shot of a mola mola (ocean sunfish) more than two years ago, but it wasn't widely seen until this year. The ocean sunfish has an average adult weight of 1,000 kg (2,200 lb) — it's the largest bony fish in the world! I remember seeing one of these while whale watching on vacation in Cape Cod

But it's a stunning photograph of one of these gentle giants that appears to be getting the most attention. The image, captured off San Diego by Daniel Botelho, became an instant hit after being posted last week on his Facebook page.

This ridiculous looking fish is often ridiculed by sea lions. The sea lions can't really eat them due to their extremely tough skin. Instead, they bounce them back and forth like a volley ball. "Mom the sea lions used me as a frizbee again waaaahhhh" *ridiculous fish

The ocean is the most amazing place. A place we can never really own. It it not ours. We can only visit and pay our respect.

The Beluga Whale also called The White Whale can mostly be found in Artic waters and become their brilliant white color around 5 yrs. of age. They are considered a smallish whale between 13-20' long and live 35-50 yrs. in the wild. They should never be kept in captivity.... it is inhumane and unjust. All whales should have the roam of the ocean!

The white blue-eyed animals are Spirit teachers and should be protected. Bow acknowledgement and ask for their teaching...then listen and be thankful. The Tiger beings are teachers of power, inner strength and survival and independence as well as understanding family dynamics and values and how to balance these things. Johan Adkins
