Porcupine Fish Refuses to Abandon Trapped Best Friend

(Video Link)

Core Sea is a marine conservation and research organization in Southeast Asia. Recently, one member of the team came across a porcupinefish while snorkeling in Chaloklum Bay, Thailand. The fish was caught in a net. The snorkler used a broken bottle to cut the fish free of the net. That was a challenge, as the net kept on getting caught on the procupinefish's spines.

Throughout the entire rescue, another porcupinefish insisted on staying close by. When the trapped fish was free, the couple swam off together.
