Baby plays ‘hide and seek’ with a whale and moment softens the nets
The beautiful interaction was captured by the camera aboard a whale-watching boat in the New Gulf, Patagonia (Argentina).
A short YouTube video shows the cute interaction between a 6-month-old baby and a southern right whale when playing ‘hide and seek’ in the middle of the sea.
The loving moment was captured by the camera aboard a whale-watching boat, as the minor’s father, Alberto Alcántara, works for this Yellow Submarine whale watching company.
The father says that he took advantage of that day to take his daughter Azul on this trip as part of a day’s work and at the same time so that her little girl would live this experience near these aquatic animals.
According to Juliette Decré, owner of Yellow Submarine. It is not unusual to see whales attracted to babies on the ship.
“The whales we found have a special connection with the babies, we also have a submarine for whale watching and every time we have babies on board, the whales get closer to the submarine’s windows,” he said.
And this is shown by the YouTube images because the whale seeing the baby moves up and then submerges again as if playing hide from her. Blue to see this nice scene just laughs and never ceases to be surprised.
