We occasionally see descriptions of marine animals approaching divers for help. Sometimes those descriptions seem to be reaching a fair amount. But sometimes they don’t. While no one can say for certain if this shark was asking for help, it certainly does seem as though it was asking for assistance from the divers around to remove a giant fishhook. In this case, it approached a person who was all too willing to lend a hand.
We hope all divers are as helpful as this one who removed a huge hook from a lemon shark’s belly.
