A woman is thanking a humpback whale today after it saved her from a 15-foot tiger shark. Biologist Nan Hauser was swimming off the coast of Rarotonga, in the Cook Islands, when the giant creature swam-in to prevent a "potentially deadly" attack. The giant whale tucked the 63-year-old,  under its pectoral fin and pushed her along with his head and mouth for around 10 minutes. She later realized that the 15-foot tiger shark was nearby, that the whale was steering her away from. What's your story of a hero pet or animal?
