Diver didn’t understand what the seal wanted until the animal grabbed his hand

When Gary and his diving buddy conjured up the camera, they noticed something. The seals were babies. When seals are born, they stay with their mother for four months. Then they independently explore the underwater world. The pups were therefore extremely curious about the two-legged creatures. For the animals, it was probably the first time they saw humans. They continued to circle the divers until one sprang into action. The animal decided to come closer.



Surprising behavior

The divers were surprised that the animal came so close. When the seal then began to nibble on Gary’s gloves affectionately and playfully, they were stunned. This was a unique situation for the divers. They even captured it on camera.

A special bond

It is not normal for seals to get used to people quickly. Normally, the animals need some time to get acquainted with people. That was not the case at all with Gary. The animals didn’t want to leave Gary alone anymore.

In particular, the little animal that came closer on its own began to bond with Gary. The seal rubbed his nose across Gary’s mask, clutching his hand constantly. It almost looked as if the creature had approved of the divers. Gary, in turn, began to tickle the seal’s belly. Something he never expected he could do.


Being lucky enough to have a camera with them, Gary and his diving buddy were able to capture the entire scene. The video of the animals playing and Gary went viral. Now was the time for Gary to spread a clear message. He wants to raise awareness of the future of the underwater world. Nature is beautiful and impressive, but at the same time victim of pollution and abuse. Let’s face it, when you see these photos, could you imagine someone wanting to hurt these animals?
