Not just once, the animal world provided almost unbelievable moments. But as it turns out, wild creatures are much more intelligent than we thought, and although they can’t speak, they only know how to ask for help from people of goodwill. This is what this suffering sea creature did!
In a truly amazing video, a giant manta ray approached a group of divers when she needed help. For Jake Wilton and his friends, manta rays are a very popular sight as they both love to dive. However, they had never experienced anything like this before, although they had several encounters with these majestic creatures.
The group was exploring the waters of Ningaloo in Australia when they noticed a manta way getting too close for comfort. But Wilton quickly realized, the large creature was indeed looking for help, and the man was happy to offer it. As it turned out, the brave creature had several hooks stuck in her body, with some inches close to her eyes.
Monty Halls, one of the divers, wrote on Facebook: “We were fortunate in that we saw a manta nice and early, and quietly slipped into the water to spend some time with,”
“Finally, he managed [to remove the hooks], and the manta quietly settled on the bottom and stayed with us for a while. It’s an extraordinary half-hour or so, and a clear illustration that these animals have intelligence, trust, and strong bonds with those who treat them with respect. ”
Though she acted instinctively, the wild creature approached Wilton as she recognized him. So she knew if she asked a friend for help, he would definitely help her. The moment left the other divers speechless.
“After a few minutes, we noticed it had some hooks buried underneath her right eye and kept showing up to our instructor Jake,” Halls explained. “This was not my imagination; it came back over and over again, turned over and stopped in the water, and – obviously – was looking to us for help.”
