A REALLY Friendly Baby Whale Shark

Humpback Whale Tries To Save Diver From Tiger Shark | Weird, True & Freaky

Humpback Whale Saves Nan Hauser Life

Two years ago in 2018, Nan Hauser a 65 year old biologist does her usual diving when something strange happened. She was experienced with diving with whales for 30 years. However, a humpback whale, she knew well began to act oddly.

The whale's action proved it did not want Nan Hauser to dive and move away from it. She knew how close to get to the whale because not meaning to hurt her; one flip of it flipper would break her bones or damage her vital body organs.

It kept trying to push her towards the surface with its head. Nan decided to move away from the humpback; and that is when she saw another sea animal.

Next to the whale was a 13 foot long tiger shark. She quickly understood the humpback whale was protecting from the shark.

She remained calm so the whale would not get upset; and slowly got back to her boat. And, unbelievable the whale came to the surface seemly to see she was safe.

What an experience with a sea animal. I believe all animals have emotions the same as humans, and sometimes they need our help too.
