PICS: Divers engulfed by sperm whale's underwater poo-nado


Cape Town - This particular sperm whale evidently has no regard for his fellow swimmers, as he calmly answered a call of nature on top of an unlucky bunch of divers who were engulfed the dark, heavy poo cloud he produced.

One of the divers, Keri Wilk, took photographs of what he described was an underwater 'poo-nado'. 



And as if THAT was not enough, the whale then proceeded to flap his tail in the poo, spreading it around and polluting the water for up to 30 meters! 

The bowl movement incident, which happened off the small Island of Dominica, has been described as a rare defense mechanism the animal used because he felt threatened. 

Wilk was part of a group of four free divers that were taking pictures of the aquatic mammal as part of a government approved expedition to photograph the whales when the incident occurred, reports News Australia.
