In this clip, a robotic submersible saves a swordfish that's been stuck in a mechanical rig. Upon being rescued, the swordfish turns right around and jams his head back in the rig. Wotta rapscallion! UPDATE: Now with footage of whales!


UPDATE 6/29/10: I just found these awesome clips of whales bumping into remote-controlled submersibles and decided they were too nifty not to post. Enjoy!

According to the Youtube descriptions, here's a whale off of Norway (things get wild ~0:45)...

...and a whale near Mississippi around 3000 feet.
