Natalia Avseenko, 36, swims naked with beluga whales in freezing waters that would kill most people within minutes.
Natalia is a skilled Russian diver. Braving sub-zero temperatures, she throws caution — and her clothes — to the wind to tame two beluga whales in a unique and controversial experiment.
She goes in naked because marine experts believe belugas do not like to be touched by artificial materials such as diving suits.
However - let's be honest - it's gotta also be because it makes it all that more clickable, right?
The average human could die if left in sub-zero temperature sea water for just five minutes.
Especially up in the Murmansk Oblast region in the far north-west of Russia at the shore of the White Sea near the Arctic Circle branch of the Utrish Dophinarium!
However, Natalia is a yoga expert and used meditation techniques to hold her breath and stay under water for an incredible ten minutes and 40 seconds.
Yes, she actually did.
I've always loved belugas - they are just so weird and other worldly... but swimming with them naked takes love to a whole new level.
Belugas are famed for the way in which their faces are able to convey human-like expressions. Their large range of 'facial expressions' comes from them having a more flexible bone structure than other whales.
There are around 100,000 belugas in the wild.
Certainly Matrena and Nilma (the whales' names) seemed to be happy enough frolicking with Natalia.
But don't be fooled.
An area of the sea is enclosed to stop whales and dolphins getting out and instructors tame the mammals before they are transported to dolphinariums around the world.
So as beautiful and romantic a notion as it is to have a naked woman swimming with happy whales - what you are actually witnessing here is a precursor for immense cruelty.
How could anyone who professes to love beluguas help them to be captured and placed in small tanks for the rest of their lives away from their natural wild habitat?
Kind of disgusting, really.
Shame on you Natalia.
Naked yoga instructor or not - leave those beautiful creatures alone!
