Mola mola & Mola mola - I got hypnotized

in life •  2 months ago

Have you ever heard about the Mola mola fish!?

Known by ocean sunfish or mola, they are the heaviest of all the bony fish in the world. Sharks and rays can be heavier, but they're cartilaginous fish.

Can two Mola mola be named of Mola mola & Mola mola!?
Obviously not, but I find it funny, although it only makes sense in portuguese. The portuguese word for clothes peg is mola, so by repeating the mola word x4 times...make it sound non-sense!!

These photos were taken in our last visit to the Oceanário de Lisboa in 2012.
I believe we took way much more time to visit it than regular people do, we got fascinated with turtles, penguins, sea otters...ohhh the sea otters, you'll love it (!) and so many others!!

If you got curious with Mola mola take a pick on this BBC-Earth video to see how they move under the water.

Hypnotizing, right!?

For me Mola mola is and will always be a weird and fascinating fish. Now that I'm mentioning "Weird Fishes" of Radiohead a compliment to the mola fish!?

Have a great week ahead!!
