Rare washed up on the shore of the Murray river in South Australia. Her scales were full of sand, so from afar, the fishermen took her behind a tree, writes the Daily Mail.

Fish length – 2.5 meters and a weight of several hundred kilograms. For its kind it is not too large: fish Mola Mola can reach 3 meters in length, 4.2 meters in height and weigh up to 2.5 tons. The moon (or, as they are called, solar) fish are found in tropical waters around the world, and because of the characteristic of the fin they are often confused with sharks.

What killed the fish, is unknown. According to Ralph foster, South Australian Museum, maybe she ate a plastic bag, mistaking it with the jellyfish.
