Meet The Man Who Has Become Friendly With a Wild Fish

This isn't a spoof story! A scuba diver really has forged an unlikely bond with a wild fish, in a Wisconsin lake.

Rex Colubra made friends with the small mouth bass while on a fresh water dive in September 2021. The odd encounter ended with the 40-year-old naming the fish Elvis.

According to the diver, the pair now see each other every year when Rex travels back to the lake where Elvis lives.

If you have any doubts about the validity of this claim, watch the video below and you might be persuaded.

The 40-year-old print-shop worker says he taught Elvis a specific call, to which it will respond.

“I will do a gulping grunt sound with my throat and he’ll come find me.”
