    For those who are diving here at the moment, you may wanna go to Apo Island this days.
    The last view days were repeated sightnings of a Mola Mola, or Sunfish.

    The Ocean sunfish is known as the heaviest bony fish with a average weight of 1,000 KG.

    It looks like a huge fishhead with tail and fins...

    Th picture is not the sunfish of Apo, I just use it to explain it better for non-divers.

    cheers

    Rhoody

    d*mn it:eek:, the mola mola is #1 on my list of "would love to see"!!! Please keep him there for another 10 days...it would make my entire vacation.

    Also, I've read about the floodings...I hope nobody got hurt or too much property was destroyed.
