A dramatic set of pictures show a man nearly being swallowed by a Bryde's Whale off Port Elizabeth Harbour in South Africa.

Rainer Schimpf, 51, has worked as a dive tour operator in South Africa for over 15 years. But in February, he experienced something very rare – the inside of a whale's mouth.

Its a sign of endearment and an expression of affection

I've seen a documentary where a whale swallowed a gannet in a school of sardines.

Perhaps the fellow looked like a giant jelly fish to the whale, to to go on a diet

I have seen this species well inshore, in the surf zone, chasing schools of anchovy. Not a common happening, though.
