Prehistoric Monster Fish Caught By Indonesian Fisherman!

Think you have caught big fish? Think again.

Weighing in 1.5 tons and more than 6 feet long, this monstrous sea creature was not exactly what you would expect to catch on a usual day out at sea. Well, technically it wasn't "caught". This rare Ocean Sunfish was actually found in critical condition after it had washed ashore in Palu, Central Sulawesi.

The fisherman were reported to try help drag it out to sea in hopes that it would recover and swim away, however sadly for this big guy, tides pulled him back in which the fish eventually died at sea.
