Sperm whale asks for help from a diver to remove the fish hook stuck in the mouth

Sometimes there are very sad situations that can be seen in nature. Most of them have happened because of humans. This is such a sad story.


Have you ever seen animals asking for help from a human? If not look at this giant sperm whale who asked for help from a diver.

Sperm whales are incredibly intelligent and have the largest brains of any creature to have ever lived. They are peaceful huge mammals and eat squid only that they catch when diving. It is thought their intelligence is why it was able to ask for help.


This incredible moment happened to the world-famous Maurician environmentalist Hugues Vitry who is also an underwater photographer. Vitry is also the vice president of the Marine Megafauna Conservation Organization and the Diving Centre Manager.

He also has helped a whale that had become entangled in ropes. Vitry is dedicated to assisting and conserving marine life. he believes that one individual can make a huge difference. The whale approaches him and moves its massive body sideways before extending its jaw which is the signal to the diver that she requires assistance.

As the whale swims beside Vitry, he focuses his camera on her and narrates what he sees. Despite the unclear translation, we can gather that he saw blood and that the hook was attached to the whale near the tooth.


As he removes the hook from the whale’s mouth the large whale remained unfazed. That was not all! Vitry was also taken aback when the whale seemed to linger for a while after he tried to comfort it that the ordeal was done.

The whale in turn appeared to be thanking him. He hugged the whale and it was like saying everything is done. Then the sperm whale stood up for a while after that, showing signs that could be interpreted as gratitude.

Vitry even embrace the whale placing his head against hers and whispered some comforting words.
