You may have to reconsider eating sushi made with eel after watching this video.
In the early 1970’s, Valerie Taylor and her husband (Australian ocean experts and cinematographers) began scuba diving and exploring the sea life underwater. Along the way, they documented their discoveries on film. In 1974, while diving near Banda Island, Indonesia, Taylor says she first met “Honey” the eel. She began feeding the curious fish other fish and over time the two developed a bond. Valerie says that After visiting on a regular basis for several years, as soon as Honey spotted her diver pal, she would swim out of her cave to greet her, and the two would cuddle.
This video was shot years ago and Valerie rarely dives anymore. Thanks to YouTube, this incredible footage was recently reposted on Youtube attracting tens of thousands of new viewers.
