Every morning, a young boy walks down to the water to see this massive beast emerge…What was it?

A substantial number of scientific studies have demonstrated how animals have a good influence on young children. Children who grow up with cats or dogs learn responsibility and kindness. These children learn from a young age that sharing is caring and are happier than those who do not possess a pet.

In Valle Gran Rey, Joel enjoys spending time with the fishermen. There is a harbor in this Canary Islands village where the locals toss bycatch and attract a variety of sea critters.

Among all those unusual creatures there is a giant manta ray that gets to greet little Joel every single day.

Luckily, someone took notice of this uncommon friendship and put it on tape.

By placing their hands in the water and holding out food, Joel and the other youngster are able to draw their friend.

Joel is able to pet the manta ray on its nose and it recognizes him, which is the most extraordinary thing.

Joel seems to be feeding the enormous manta ray shrimp, which seems to be its absolute favorite food. A few thoughtful fishermen who are aware of this partnership make sure to leave Joel a box full of shrimp.

After filling up, the enormous animal receives another pet for its head and nose before gradually vanishing into the deep ocean.

Unlike stingrays, manta’s do not have a stinger, which means that they cannot kill people and have no way of harming humans.

The video of lovely Joel and his pal was seen more than 50 million times once it was posted on YouTube.
People were staggered by the sight and one even wrote: “My faith in humanity’s restored. These boys have good souls.”

Another commenter loved seeing how respectful Joel was with the manta ray. “This is really amazing. It’s also good to see that the boy knows to respect boundaries and doesn’t go too far (e.g. jumping in with the ray). The ray flapping back to the boy was so fantastic.”
