'That's a Moray' Scuba Diver and Eel Share an Incredible Friendship

Posted: Updated:
This video documenting a professional diver's unlikely friendship with a moray eel is simply amazing, You may have to stop eating sushi made with eel.

Back in the 70's,  Australian ocean experts and cinematographers Valerie Taylor and her husband began swimming the oceans, studying marine life.

Taylor says she first met "Honey" the eel back in 1974 while diving near Banda Island, Indonesia. She began feeding the curious fish other fish and over time the two developed a bond.

Valerie says that after a few years of regular visits, as soon as Honey spotted her diver pal, she would swim out of her cave to greet her, and the two would cuddle.

This video was shot years ago and Valerie rarely dives anymore. But thanks to the Internet, this incredible footage was recently reposted on Youtube attracting tens of thousands of new viewers.  Good for us!.
