      A humpback whale recently swallowed a Cape Cod lobster diver.

      This is a highly unusual event, but one expert told Live Science that there are certain types of behaviors that could have led to the man being swallowed — such as diving too close to the whale’s normal food.

      Michael Packard was 45 feet (14 meters) deep in the coastal waters off Provincetown, Massachusetts, on Friday (June 11), when he was suddenly gulped inside the mouth of an enormous marine animal.

      “All of a sudden, I felt this huge bump, and everything went dark,” he told WBZ-TV News.
