An adventurous sea kayaker named Steve was coming in from an offshore fishing trip when he saw something odd bobbing up and down in the waves. He didn’t know what it was at first, but the weird shape immediately caught his eye in the water.
He stopped paddling and froze in place when he noticed that “it” had started to swim. The lone kayaker was just inside the reef, but still four miles from land, which meant that help was not coming anytime soon. Steve had only one option. Facing his fears, he headed straight towards the unknown…
Yet, when he got a closer look, Steve realized it wasn’t a strange new ocean-dwelling creature after all! In all his years he’d never seen one this so far out in the ocean. This poor little critter had somehow gotten lost at sea. Steve thinks the king tide’s swift current carried the cold-blooded animal from its home on dry land, catching it unawares.
Thankfully, the little guy trusted Steve enough to hop onto his boat and get a fun Uber-like ride back to shore.
