Yael is a diving instructor and has encountered sea turtles numerous times. However, this particular encounter was unlike any she had experienced before. Recently, Yael was leading a free-diving session with her students when they noticed the turtle feasting on a jellyfish. Initially, the turtle was cautious and pushed the jellyfish away from them.
Yael pondered on how to make the turtle feel more at ease and wondered, “How can I establish a sense of comfort with the turtle?” She decided to pretend to consume the jellyfish alongside the turtle, and the moment she shared it with her, the turtle’s behavior underwent a complete transformation!
The turtle surfaced with the jellyfish and allowed Yael to feed it to her! After some time, Yael realized she had swum a distance away from the boat and bid farewell to her newfound companion. To her surprise, the turtle swam alongside her, following all the way back to the boat. Yael described the experience as if they had formed a deep bond during their shared meal.
Sharing a jellyfish salad with a turtle is certainly an extraordinary occurrence!
