Seal Asks Diver For Belly Rub And Responds Just Like A Puppy
Gary Grayson, 55, is a thrill-seeker from Salford, UK. While diving in 2014, however, he had an unexpected encounter just off the Isles of Scilly that has stayed with him to this day: an Atlantic grey seal that asked him for a belly rub! In the video below, the seal seems to reach for Graysons hand, and then is pleased by the affection that follows.
This grey seal came across and had five minutes with me, kind of thing. Then another was climbing up my leg, Grayson told M.E.N. Im an experienced diver but I have never known anything like that… I tend to live life on the edge. But this was certainly up there with anything I have ever done.
