Brave Scuba Diver Helps Save A Whale Shark Tangled In Fishing Line

Whale sharks are some of the largest marine animals in the world sometimes measuring over 40 feet long.  However, they are quite gentle and feed on plankton.

While filming for a series called “Secrets of Shark Island,” they stumbled upon a large whale shark that became tangled in fishing line. The diver in the series swam right up to the gigantic creature and cut the fishing line from his body. What is more extraordinary is that the whale shark seemed to sense what was going on and sits perfectly still as the man goes to work.
