Man, takin’ on the jellies! You’ve got serious thrill issues, dude. Awesome. “I shall call him squishy, and he shall be mine, and he shall be my squishy.” -Dory
However, the Reddit community calls this photo a fake:
Cool picture, but I’m very skeptical…the focus on the jellyfish looks different than the focus on the turtle, and the various details on the turtle make it look more like a toy (something weird about the details on the face and close fin especially…)
Outside of this and our best buds at Pixar, are there any documented instances of this? All I keep finding is this picture. I want to belieeeveee.
Edit: Proof of fake: Photographer’s website here http://www.divephotoguide.com/user/superjolly/gallery/super-jolly/photo/17566/#viewImage
They have nice underwater photos and include fake, plastic sea creatures. Not all are faked, I believe, but he has a fake croc, fake shark, and this is a fake turtle.
