A giant manta ray was recorded appearing to seek help from a snorkeller in Australia to remove metal hooks from her face in some extraordinary footage of human-animal interaction.
The video shows the 10-foot sea creature attempt to get the attention of the snorkelling instructor, Jake Wilton, in Ningaloo Coast reef near Western Australia, on Friday.
The manta ray, a familiar animal known by locals as Freckles, had large fishing hooks lodged close to her right eye.
“It’s very rare for an animal to turn and come back over to you and present themselves,” Wilton told journalists. “So I knew as soon as she started to interact with us, it was something very special.”
Wilton said he quickly realised that the sea creature was in need of help — and removed the hooks.
“I wasn’t really thinking about anything else except trying to get them out,” he said. “I really didn’t want to mess it up.” The manta ray seemed to know that the diver was trying to help her. The video was produced by Seadog TV & Film Productions and Tourism Western.
