Humpback whales almost swallow divers


>

SFW Video

It's around the 30 second mark

If Pinocchio taught me anything it's that these guys would have been fine.

10 feet from a humpback breaching for sardines with it's mouth wide open is as close to "almost" as you can get, moron.

I wonder how much longer after the video the Nisshan Maru showed up and the Sea Shepherd crew.

Saw this on Yahoo last night and had to watch it again.

shite is awesome.

Those divers are lucky humpbacks don't eat humans or they'd have been toast.

That's what I say. I like watching the videos where people are miles off the coast in a little kayak or inflatable boat and large whales start swarming around them. One swoop of that tail and you are fricked.

I swam with a whale shark offshore once, it's crazy how big they are when you get that close

I don't know. As much water as they take in when thy breach like that I don't think it would be a huge problem swallowing a human but I am not sure that they would. Either way you are going to have a bad time if you get caught up in that.

I would be scared of being tipped over in the middle of nowhere by one. They are just so huge and powerful that a little boat would stand no chance if they got hit by one breaching.

This is my nightmare. I'm deathly afraid of whales. The sheer size of them frightens me to no end.

We had gotten around a group of dolphins while fishing one day, those things stink when the come up for air, I don't even want to think about what a big arse whale would smell like.
