Whales are pretty spectacular creatures, but usually best kept at something of a length.
After all, they’re the largest animals on Earth and generally unconcerned about humans, so they can unwittingly throw their weight around. For this grey whale, however, there are no such problems with people – this one just wants to snug up and make friends. Watch the amazing video here.
The footage was taken by Charles Harmer and Mike Nulty, two marine photographers who were on the boat when the grey whale decided to make friends with a few humans.
It swims up right to the side of their vessel and allows the people to stroke it on its side, with one even leaning over and seeming to give the mega-mammal a little kiss.
The grey whale is not quite the biggest fish in the sea, but it isn’t far off. They can grow to lengths just shy of 15 metres in length and weighs somewhere in the region of 36 tonnes, which is massive by anyone’s standards.
