Try to Guess What Was Biting This Hook Before This Guy

These snorkelers just made a great save on a predatory fish. Were they brave or just crazy?

Sometimes humans cause problems for animals in the natural world. It’s then that others step in and step up to try and make the situation right.

Enter a pair of snorkelers with a good heart and some intestinal fortitude.

The question remains: does a fish with a hook stuck in its mouth need it removed in a saltwater situation? Most experts say no, and yet if we can we will or we will try to.

If it’s a stainless steel hook then it’s a different situation, but with 25 seconds left in the video when the diver holds it to the lens, it looks like that hook is already rusting on the shank.

The other question is one of swimming with active sharks and setting yourself up for a nasty bite or worse. Well thankfully no one was hurt in this video and these brave guys actually freed one shark from a hook so cheers to them and many more safe dives!
