Amazing Nature Video

By Joe McFarlane


A huge grouper swam up to a man and asked for tummy tickles like a dog.

When Christian Avalos visited Global Aquatics in Ontario, California, he a yellow and grey fish started swimming over.

Reaching into the water, Christian started by stroking the grouper along its back.

Clearly relaxed, the chilled-out fish even turns slightly on to its side so Christian could tickle its tummy like a puppy.

Christian said: “As I walked closer to the fish, I noticed he kept slowing down as if it was trying to get my attention.

“I went with my instinct and pet the little guy.

“He loved it! He seemed so happy to be pet! At one point in the video you can see the fish rotate to its side.”
