A diver and underwater cameraman 'hunting for sardines' along with his colleagues in the Indian Ocean off the south-eastern coast of South Africa witnessed a 40-tonne humpback whale jumping literally out of the water! Luckily, the diver recorded the jumping 'exercise' of the whale and uploaded it onto YouTube, which went viral.

The enormous adult humpback whale, weighing at least 40,000 kg, was filmed leaping out of the ocean.

"This day, there were few sardine sightings but the whales seemed to be everywhere! An unexpected bonus," he said.
