We have heard of unlikely friendships between cats and mice and the like but this is too wonderful to be true. In the first picture, you will see how enormous the sperm whale is and you can’t help but wonder at the guts of the man who wanted to befriend it. Well he seems to have been quite successful doing this. The sperm whale allows him to stroke it, swim along side it and even wash it.
The whale in the picture is a 10 year old sperm whale nick names Scar. The sperm whales are the largest creatures in the world and to be accepted into its community is a big deal indeed. Andrew Armor is the local guide who is the lucky man. In the pictures you will see a lot of whale activity including group shallow dives.
