Underwater Hunting On One Breath
People form Bajau tribe cheated nature a little and got adapted to lasting underwater on one breath for about 5 minutes. In the video above, an Indonesian hunter swims to a depth of 65 feet, and stays there for just under three minutes (and that’s because he caught a fish quickly). This is absolutely amazing!
Bajau live on houseboats or in stilt houses off the shores. So much of their time is spent in the water, they often feel landsick when they are on dry land.
Because of the pressure from diving, these divers will intentionally rupture their eardrums at an early age – which essentially makes them partially deaf, a high price to pay for ensuring a good catch. The deep dives even change their eye muscles increasing their underwater eyesight.
