Seal Asks Diver For Belly Rub And Responds Just Like A Puppy

Gary Grayson, 55, is a thrill-seeker from Salford, UK. While diving in 2014, however, he had an unexpected encounter just off the Isles of Scilly that has stayed with him to this day: an Atlantic grey seal that “asked” him for a belly rub! In the video below, the seal seems to reach for Grayson’s hand, and then is pleased by the affection that follows.

“This grey seal came across and had five minutes with me, kind of thing. Then another was climbing up my leg,” Grayson told M.E.N. “I’m an experienced diver but I have never known anything like that… I tend to live life on the edge. But this was certainly up there with anything I have ever done.”

Gary couldn’t believe his eyes when a grey seal swam up to him and “asked” for a belly rub

Soon the seal was on cloud-nine, forgetting all his problems at work and troubles at home

“This grey seal came across and had five minutes with me, kind of thing”

“I’m an experienced diver but I have never known anything like that”

“People ask why I go diving… this is why”

Seals are cute, very friendly. I'm guessing they have individual personalities like humans.

Lovely seal, he probably treated with humans before but they are kind of that, friendly and like pets
