Smiling Pilot Whale Captured on Camera
A Marine Biologist was granted a rare permit to dive in the Strait of Gibraltar and snapped this incredible photo of a Pilot Whale seemingly smiling for the camera.

Mr Moore, from Crickhowell, Wales, said: "Some of the whales came up to the camera and started to blow bubbles and 'bark' loudly. It was an amazing thing to witness but it was actually a clear sign to keep our distance.
He said: "We think these pilot whales will have had minimal contact with humans. It's great because they are very curious and they were very keen in coming to investigate us and were looking at their reflections in the camera lens.

that smiles gets small cetaceans in to a lot of trouble. as happy as that pilot whale may be it's not really smiling. and that curiosity is what gets them killed so easy.
