Injured Manta Ray Approaches Divers For Help. Nothing Could Prepare Them For What They Saw
For a diver seeing a manta ray approaching you is both exhilarating and scary, but this manta is not there because of its inquisitive nature – it was looking for help.
Some time in the past the poor thing got caught into a fishing line which gradually cut itself deep into manta’s flesh. I guess it figured that the only ones who could take the fishing line off are those who cast it – the humans. As soon as the diver touched it, the manta ray flinched in pain, but I imagine the pain of living with it for the rest of its life would be far worse.
