New Delhi: Whale encounters are really rare and one can only experience it if they decide to show themselves to you, chances of which are truly hard to come by.
It seems, though, that whales in and around Mexico’s famed San Ignacio Lagoon give more than just a glimpse of themselves to humans, since it is an area renowned for being one of the most likely places in the world to see whales.
It is mainly due to their large number that they have become accustomed to human presence in their habitat. Their comfort level with boaters has increased over time.
Even though boaters are forbidden to initiate contact with the giant mammals, the whales themselves are quite comfortable around them and approach them without any hesitation.
The video you are about to watch shows you the amazing bond that a mother gray whale and its baby make with the tourists on the boat.
The best part of the footage? When the mother whale lifts her calf and shows her off proudly for the boaters to pet! What makes this moment so special is the fact that whales are known to be extremely protective about their young ones.
This connection is what makes this video so heart-warming. Have a look!
