An incredible tale of the relationship between a fish and a diver is showcased in a fascinating video. The diver started noticing peculiar behavior in a tiny fish and decided to document it.
Rachel has over 2000 dives under her belt, but she has never seen such behavior in a fish. The first time they encountered the fish, Sonny, they thought it was just a coincidence that the fishy acted so strangely.
But when they returned, a couple of weeks later, they realized that the same fish did the same extraordinary things. It is almost as if the fish enjoys their company and his actions are inexplicable.
The fish leads them around the reef and points out interesting things that the divers want to see, like a barracuda and a sleeping turtle. It is almost as if the fish is their own underwater tour guide.
If that wasn’t unbelievable enough, the fish also comes swimming toward her when she beckons him. It seems happy to see them every time they return to this spot on the reef, and it is almost like a puppy, an underwater puppy.
Sonny has returned time and time again. They recognize him from the markings on his head, and these distinct spots make him recognizable from the other butterflyfish on the reef. That, and his unique behavior, of course.
Viewers are blown away by this strange relationship. One viewer commented: ‘The fact that Sonny would go out of his way to show her other underwater treasures just shows how much he cherishes this strange little relationship.’ This video makes viewers question fish intelligence, and it is impossible to finish the video without smiling.
