Huge Fish..


How would you like to meet this fish, as you are scuba diving?
He is a man-sized grouper and he is in the Eastern Pacific Ocean..can grow to 6' and weigh up to 1,000 lbs..
He is a new species..just when you think we know it all, something new is discovered. I know this, I wouldn't want to be under the water when this guy shows up..
You can read about it here..

When you read stories like this, it makes you realize, there are still things on this earth that we know nothing about..Interesting, don't you think?


Till next time, keep looking up..

Very interesting. Makes you wonder what else is out there that we don't know about. But I agree, wouldn't want to meet up with him underwater. But I pretty much stick to pools so I guess I am safe!

oh, I wouldn't want to meet him on his home turf at snacktime! YIKES!

it's really cool there are still things out there that are a mystery.

As you well know I find all underwater creatures fascinating. When they're behind glass. And/or when I'm on the beach. lol

That fish would feed a crowd wouldn't it?!

I love that, I love learning about new things that we have never known existed before. What else I wonder will we discover is real after all? :) Peace!

When I was little I always wanted to pet my goldfishes....they didn't like it.

Rocki said...

Oh... my... gosh! Gulp! I don't know, as long as he's a nicey fishie I wouldn't mind meeting him in person ;)

ElegantSnobbery said...

Oh WOW!!! I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable sharing my swimming space with him... but I must say that with all of the animals going extinct, it is nice to hear of a newly discovered species!!
