    Why is he touching it🤦🏼‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️ Thats like one of the first rules of diving ti never do that, to not disturb thesurrounding and also to make sure that you dont die because there are a lot of dangerous and venemous animals and plants down there

    Firstly they go with the inappropriate touching, which can have unintended consequences.

    Then they go with the rapid assent – no doubt while
    breathing in – which can have other unintended consequences.

    All in all a bit stupid.

    Best to leave them alone, wasn’t that long ago that someone posted a video of one of these biting some poor guys thumb clean off.

    I mean what did u expect when you started molesting the eel I wouldn’t appreciate some random fucker grabbing at my backside

    In Belize, we went on an all day spear fishing tour where we were snorkeling around. Our guide introduced us to The Hulk, a wild local moray eel that was used to people, and we were all invited to touch him. They keep their mouths open to breathe, and it’s not a sign of aggression. You’ll see them open and close their mouths repeatedly to breathe. They’re pretty docile creatures. Our guide could easily swim to the ocean floor and back to the surface with no scuba gear, like this diver. He also picked up a sea cucumber to show us.

    Eels are very frightening creatures.

    I was spear fishing at about a 12 foot depth. The mask I was using had a very narrow range of vision. As I was working my way along a coral “wall” a large eel pushed its head out of the cavity it was in. The head and those threatening teeth suddenly filled my field of vision. It was a nightmare quality experience and I think about it whenever I see any underwater footage.

    I know literally nothing about scuba diving but this guy is an idiot. If I’m in an African safari, do I pet the tail of a snake? Sure! It might be a black mamba only one way to find out!

    After watching the video of the guy feeding hotdogs to a Moray and getting his thumb bit off I stay far away from them when diving.

    Here’s the video in case you want to hear the popping sound your thumb makes underwater when getting bitten off by an eel.

    One of the biggest rules of diving, is to not mess with the wildlife. But still, constantly divers ignore this. I hope you get bit, not even gonna lie

    I like how the first thing you are taught about scuba diving is not to touch anything in case you fuck up their ecosystem and this person goes straight in with the grabby hands at the first danger noodle they see.

  • MamaRunsThis

    It pisses me off when people think they can just touch sea life and animals. How would you like it if someone came into your house and started touching and caressing you

  • Virtootles

    As a diver, Fuck this person. We dive to look and explore not harass wildlife. Climate change does enough of that already.

  • Cheeseyex

    As a diver this really pisses me off. Literally rule number 1 is to respect the environment your going into. The coral he’s right beside is incredibly fragile and just brushing against it could kill certain species. Harassing the animals is a massive no-no. Not only does it stress them out but it causes them to leave. Meaning no one else on the dive with you gets to see them. This is a moray which are territorial and can and will bite you for getting that close and touching it. If I saw a diver do this and get bitten I would tell him he deserved it. He’s right down on the sand and I’m genuinely shocked that he didn’t kick up a huge cloud of sand tuning visibility of that immediate area for the next for minutes. Heck his descent is clearly uncontrolled unless he *planned* to shove his camera into the eel which is somehow worse.

    There’s to much wrong with this clip for me to find it funny

    We call those “tohe” where I live. Those guys don’t fuck around and *will* chase you. They also fuck your lines up if you hook one. They do the “death roll” and wrap themselves real good. I remember as a kid, my dad caught one on accident and threw it in a 5 gal. bucket to use as bait for later. I, being a curious 7 year old, decided to look in the bucket. In a blink of an eye, that thing just propelled itself about 10 feet out. Letting them be is the safest option.

  • Danitoba

    You charged that eel head on, and went right up into his buisness, and reached out at him.
    I’m thoroughly surprised, and almost disappointed, it didnt bite your arrogant hand off.

    Do not EVER approach any wildlife like that. Especially wildlife that can rip you a new one, like the big ol’ Mooray Eel.
