Whales almost eat Divers
When a group of divers jumped into the water off the coast of central California recently, they probably weren't expecting to get so close to a pair of whales.
In a video of the remarkable encounter, two whales appear to almost "eat" the divers as the marine mammals breach the surface of the water with mouths open wide.
Filming from the boat, one of the crew captures the incredibly close call on video as the divers scramble back to the rig to get away from the whales.
The video, posted on YouTube Saturday, also includes underwater footage of the moments leading up to the whales' breach when a surge of small fish comes rushing toward the camera.
As Smithsonian Magazine notes, technically, it is possible for certain whales to swallow humans, however it's highly unlikely.
