    Default Two Humpback Whales Protect Diver from a Shark Attack

    One whale shielded the marine biologist with its body, fins, and mouth even. Nudging her towards her boat over the coarse of several minutes. While another humpback swam towards and engaged a large tiger shark that was circling the diver.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    That's an amazing story and video. The video sometimes shows another animal in the distance, but I can't make out whether it's the other whale or the shark.

    Imagine swimming in the same water with a 46' long living creature! Bigger than a standard city bus, and watching your back!

    ^ Imagine that we used to hunt them and some nations still do.

    Did anyone see the shark? I did not.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.
