A group of divers have a lucky encounter with a giant sun fish, also known as a mola mola. These fish sun themselves and sometimes allow birds to fly down and remove parasites from them. In this amazing video, a group of shark divers swim over to the mola mola and give it a nice back scratch, removing some of the pesky parasites known as copepods. Thanks to Skyler Thomas of White Shark Video for capturing the story and Pelagic Expeditions for the experience.
