The ocean covers about 70% of the Earth’s surface, which is quite mindboggling when you think about it. There are still millions of species of animals and plants that live within the ocean that we don’t even know about! Isn’t that crazy? Scientists have more knowledge about outer space and the universe than about what lurks right under our oceans. It is home to all sorts of interesting creatures, and the divers who took this video had a rare encounter with an interesting fish.
This video was taken off the coast of Portugal. Marine biologists were swimming underwater when they came across this gigantic Sun fish. The fish is the biggest known to man! It can grow to be the size of a truck and can go on to weigh over a thousand pounds! Now that is something spectacular indeed. The team was very pleased to record this goliath, but even the Sun fish is no match compared to the Whale Shark.
They also encountered a Whale Shark, and it was also an incredible moment. They are known as the King of the Sea, and can grow up to be over 40 feet long. They can also weigh up to 45,000 pounds, so even the biggest Sun fish can be dwarfed in comparison. Despite their size, both these creatures are very gentle and harmless to humans.
Just look at their massive sizes! This really makes you stop for a moment and be amazed by Mother Nature and her creations!
