As promised to the @natgeo followers, here is an image of a large Mola mola (Sunfish) and  free-driver, @aprilbencze swimming into position for scale.  The Mola mola was actually approaching us as it wanted us to help rid itself of parasites.  Sunfish grow up to 2000 pounds, making them the largest bony fish in the world.  This fish must have been over 8 feet in diameter and I would love to know how much it weighed. By Paul Nicklen

The heaviest bony fish in the world, it can grow more than 10 feet long and pack on a whopping 5,000 pounds, and yet its flat body, which is taller than it is long, has no real tail to speak of. (“Mola” means “millstone” in Latin and refers to the fish’s disc-like physique.)"
