Photographer Swims With Huge Goliath Groupers

Watch more with these video collections:

“They remind me of my family, like my Uncle Johnny from New Jersey,” explains photographer David Doubilet of Florida’s massive goliath groupers. From National Geographic:

They gather on shipwrecks and reefs to eat and socialize. At up to 800 pounds and nine feet long, they sport jutting jaws and giant palm fronds for fins and are mottled and spotted in earth tones. They announce their presence to encroaching creatures by squeezing their swim bladders, the air sacs that help keep them afloat. Whump. Whump. WHUMP!
