Whale Swam up to The Boat Captain and Requested a Helpful Favor

Whale Swam up to The Boat Captain and Requested a Helpful Favor

Over the span of two decades, Paco Jimenez Franco has assumed the role of a whale watching captain in the enchanting waters of Ojo de Liebre, a lagoon nestled along the Pacific coast of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula. Throughout his tenure, Franco has been blessed with unparalleled encounters with these magnificent creatures, considering each sighting as a precious gift.

And he has discovered a unique method of reciprocating the blessings he has received.

During instances when whales approached Franco’s boat, the observant captain noticed that some of them carried whale lice, which are ordinary parasites that attach themselves to different areas of a whale’s physique.

While the exact impact of the lice on the whales’ well-being remains uncertain, there is a theory suggesting that their breaching behavior could serve as an attempt to rid themselves of these unwelcome hitchhikers.

Entertaining the suspicion that this theory held truth, one day when a whale approached within reach, Franco seized the opportunity to pluck some lice off her body. And, as expected:

“Once I removed the first one, she approached again so that I could continue to do so,” Franco told The Dodo.

Ever since that moment, the very same whale has developed a routine of visiting Franco on his boat for subsequent lice removal sessions. Approaching closely, she raises her head above the water, within Franco’s reach, and patiently remains in position for him to meticulously clean her, ensuring a thorough grooming session.

“I have done it repeatedly, with the same whale and others,” Franco said. “It is very exciting for me.”

Behold this footage capturing Franco’s compassionate routine in action:

While regulations generally prohibit touching whales in numerous locations worldwide, specific areas along the coast of Baja California are known to permit such interactions, especially when the initiation comes from the whale itself, as in this remarkable case.

Based on Franco’s firsthand encounters, where he has been selected as a trusted “cleaner” by the whales, these intimate interactions have further heightened his profound admiration for these majestic creatures.

“I have learned, by seeing their behavior, that there is a certain nobility in them,” he said. “They’re incredible.”

A Dog Heroically Stays Inside a Burning House, Refusing to Leave as He Protects Four Small Friends That Are Also Trapped Inside

Who says dogs don’t like cats? People always think that dogs and cats are ‘natural’ enemies and the story below will prove us wrong. This story might be one of the most unusual rescue stories ever.

A Jack Russell mix dog named Leo risked his life to protect and save four newborn kittens from house fire in Melbourne, Australia. When firefighters were trying to prevent the flames spread in the house, they discovered a dog still inside the home. Firefighters had to dodge fallen power lines to reach the dog.

Leo was found lying unconscious on the floor. They lifted him up and were in total shock of what they found beneath him! The dog had placed his body over kittens to keep them safe until help could arrive. Miraculously, the four kittens were unharmed, thanks to Leo. Firefighters rushed the pets outside where Leo was given oxygen. He is now feeling well.
