Divers off the island of Dominica encountered one of the ocean's most dignified and majestic creatures, the sperm whale. Hurray! Oh wait, it's turning around....oh wait, it's spraying poop all over us.
Some of the ways the divers described this experience to the Telegraph: "The water was like chocolate milk, I couldn't see my hand when I held it in front of my face" and "I had poop in my eyes, mouth, wetsuit, everywhere and I was soaked in it from head to toe."
If you're wondering if this was just unfortunate timing for everybody, it doesn't sound like it:
Four of us looked at each other with confusion, then back at the whale, expecting that any second its call from nature would come to an end. Instead, the whale bobbed up and down, spun in circles and waved the poo in every direction for several minutes while we just sat back and watched.
The rare defense mechanism is being labeled a "poonado," which is a fun new vocab word for us all to start working into daily conversations.
