This year at the Sunshine Aquarium in Japan, aquarium employees got into the Christmas spirit, as one donned a Santa suit to feed the stingrays to the delight of the visitors and stingrays alike. The unlikely aquatic Santa grinned as he swam among the rays, distributing presents in the form of fishy treats as visitors looked on from the other side of the glass.

UPDATE: And if that’s not enough scuba-diving Santa for you, here’s more video of another one of Santa’s visits with his fishy children at the Guadalajara Zoo in Mexico.
