Gary the Nassau grouper lives on the Bloody Bay Wall in Little Cayman and comes running whenever he sees a diver. He certainly looks like he craves attention and will not let you be without showing him some love.

Out of all the grouper, the Nassau variety are the least shy and will readily approach divers. However, since they are a favorite in both sports and commercial fishing, the Nassau grouper is labeled as endangered on the endangered species list!

Gary here will reach the weight of approximately 55 pounds and will be 3 feet in length when he is full-grown. Give Gary love by sharing this video!

      JoKidd, I've seen fish, stingrays too that like to be petted, yes, it's quite odd because you might encounter a thousand fish before even one turns out like this little guy. He won't be so 'gentle' later on these damn things can drown a man when full grown. lol.
