This Eel Could Have Very Easily Injured This Woman, But Something Unexpected Happened

This giant eel shows a gentle side.

Valerie Taylor was diving off the coast of Indonesia with her husband Ron when she first met the Moral Eel she later called "Honey." After years of visiting Honey, Valerie and the eel formed a special relationship. This amazing video shot by Ron and posted by Ocean and Earth Defenders captures that friendship.

Although this video is a few years old and Ron Taylor has since passed away, we thought we'd share this amazing inter-species friendship with you.
