A group of scuba divers is out in the ocean when, suddenly, they are approached by a giant whale shark. Now, if you're like me, you have never heard of a whale shark. As I found out, whale sharks are actually the biggest species of fish in existence. I can't imagine what is going through the divers’ minds as the whale swims up to where they are. cute-whale-saved.jpg

They are probably expecting the whale to swim on by, but the whale swims right up to one of them and touches his hand, letting the diver know it needs some help. Immediately, the divers noticed a huge commercial fishing rope wrapped around the creature’s body, cutting into its flesh. One of the diver’s quickly gets out his knife and begins cutting away at the rope.

It takes no more than a minute to free the animal that had probably been bound by the rope for a long time. As the whale shark is freed he swims off into the distance free, ready to begin life, again, in the freedom of the ocean.
