Seal Holds Hands with Diver Underwater
By Amanda Walgrove
  • Seal diver Ben Burville uploaded the above video of his diving adventure off the Northumberland coast, showing a beautiful moment that he shared with a friendly seal.

    In the caption of his “Holding hands” video, Burville wrote that the front flippers of a seal can grasp much like a human hand, as evident in the underwater footage.

    Burnville’s sense of amazement can be seen on his face, even through goggles and diving gear, aided by the statement that opens his YouTube video: “Time spent in the wild with nature can calm the restless soul.”
