BBC presenter and zoologist Mark Carwardine was in one the most popular blue whale hotspots in the Pacific Ocean and yet couldn’t find any whales. Or so he thought.
“It just makes it so challenging. It makes it quite exciting in one way, but it’s very frustrating in another,” Carwardine said to the camera. “You know they’re here, you just jolly well can’t find them.”
But as soon as he explained to viewers that they likely wouldn’t see any whales that day, a spout shot up. The camera then pans to show the very thing they thought they wouldn’t see — a giant, majestic blue whale.
“Oh look,” he sheepishly giggles. “There is one!”
Carwardine, a noted zoologist, was working with a camera crew to produce a new BBC show called Big Blue Live, The Independent reports.
