@ryanwaltonofficial and @svnsx07 were filmed by @lschmidt_10 removing a hook from a shark’s mouth while in a state of tonic immobility. 🦈🎣🙏 Courtesy of @maestro320, here are three methods to remove a hook: 👍 1️⃣ The first is by cutting the flesh to remove it. 2️⃣ The second is to cut the eye of the hook off and then push the remainder of the hook through the flesh and 3️⃣ The third is to place pressure on the shank towards the flesh which pulls the barb into the now oval hole then push the hook out the way it came in.

What a whale of a tail! 💙 A group of lucky whale watchers from @naturalistecharters had a close encounter with a few friendly humpbacks. Would you like to go whale watching? 🧐🐋

This snapper shows us the proper way to consume a lionfish. 🍽😱 Let’s hope that the snapper can help control the lion fish population as it’s one of the most invasive species in the world and will eat anything that it can fit in its mouth. 😛 It had been demonstrated that a single lionfish can reduce native marine creatures by 80 to 90% in its range within just 5 weeks! 🤯 Do you know what the main cause of the Lionfish invasion is? 🤓 Comment Below👇 via @diveeasy 💙 Don't forget to follow us! 🙏 @oceanarmor 🌊🛡

This is a friendly encounter a family had with a hungry ocean friend. 😀 Although this is cute, we don't recommend feeding wildlife, as it can be unsafe for you and them. It’s always best to keep your distance and observe respectfully 😉 Via @naturee 💙

This baby silk shark had a hook stuck in its mouth. 😠 Luckily, @lizparkinson1 knew just what to do. By twisting it’s tail slightly, the shark entered a state of tonic immobility which allowed her to safely remove the hook. 🦈 Well done, Liz! 🙏

@big_ben1967 “Enjoying the Magdalena Bay Gray Whales as a family was an unbelievable encounter that we will never forget!” 🐋🐋🐋 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 The whale mothers actually encourage their babies to approach the boats, so luring with food doesn’t take place. 👶🛥 It’s as though they like their barnacles scratched. 👋 They’re super comfortable with human encounters! 🤗

Pilot fish are part of one of nature's most fascinating symbiotic relationships. 👫They guard themselves from threats by tagging alongside sharks. 🦈🐠 And in a remarkable show of restraint for an apex predator, sharks have come to not only tolerate, but welcome pilot fish without eating them. 🤗 In return for the protection, pilot fish keep the shark free of harmful parasites and clean up bits of excess food. In fact, the trust between the animals is so great that pilot fish are even known to enter their shark's mouth to nibble away food debris 😳 via @azuladotcom @shark_diver_llc 🙌

A woman with a prosthetic arm got a curious dolphin’s attention when it spotted her arm. 👀🐬 Then, other dolphins stopped by to see what all the commotion was about. 🙋‍♀️ The intelligence of these animals is unreal. 🤓 It’s so sad and unfortunate this amazing experience takes place in a glass tank 😢 via YouTube user RM Videos 💙

The giant grouper is the largest reef-dwelling fish in the world, growing up to 3.65 meters long and weighing up to 400 kg. 😮 They’re very slow swimmers, so they rely on ambushing tactics to catch their prey. 🍽 They eat lobsters, crabs, fish and even small sharks and young sea turtles, using their massive mouths to eat their prey whole. 🌊 Via @jim_abernethy 💙

Nature is so amazing. 🙌 Although this fish could easily turn this shrimp into a crunchy snack, it understands their relationship as beneficial for both and so the fish shows patience during his cleaning. 👫 For the shrimp, it is provided food in the form of naturally occurring, and obviously delicious parasites that must be removed from the fish's body to ensure the fish lives a healthy life. 🐠🦐😻 squadgoals 🤣 @fanta6969

This encounter between an adult pufferfish and a porcupine fish shows the amazing functionality of one of nature’s most interesting self defense mechanisms. 🛡 When threatened, the porcupine fish balloons up and exposes sharp needle-like points that prevent predators from making a meal out of it. ⚔️ In this case, it worked! 🤗 After this brief encounter, the puffer gives up and both go their separate ways. 💙 via @fathomlesslife 🙌 🎥 by @okdiversbali 🙏

Great white sharks typically weigh an average of 1,500 to 2,400 lbs and can grow up to 21 feet in length, though females average 15-16 feet and males average 11-13 feet. 😱 This particular 11.5 foot great white was spotted by @calypsostarcharters.videos and is named "Freckles." 🦈
