Say cheeese! The Jaw-some moment shark gives camera his goofiest smile and looks just like Bruce from Finding Nemo
Jaw-some! This smiling shark looks just like Bruce from Finding Nemo.
The hilarious pictures shows a shark underwater in Juniper, Florida, looking straight into the camera with all its gnashers on show.
It was caught on film in February 2016 by Kenneth “Wayne” MacWilliams, 58, a retiree from Florida.
However, there is something slightly less intimidating about this shark than Bruce, as the smile is more goofy than malicious.
This might have something to do with the fact that the pictured shark is a lemon shark – known as the friendliest shark.
Although they grow up to 10 feet in length, they don’t use their power to their advantage and there have never been any known human fatalities.
Kenneth was diving with Emerald Charters scuba diving, owned by ‘shark whisperer’ Capt. Randy Jordan.
Randy Jordan’s rules are simple: Stay out of the chum line, do not dive below him and do not wear contrasting colours.
Kenneth said: “Since it appears as the shark is smiling, it made me smile.
“The sharks will swim from behind you thru your legs, bump into your body or camera/strobes if “you decide” to get close to the action.
“Shark diving can of course be quite exciting because of the possibility of seeing these big, powerful, potentially dangerous, beautiful animals of nature.
“But, with a bit of common sense, coupled with an experienced crew the inherent dangers can be mitigated quite a bit.
“I don’t think lemon sharks assimilate divers with food. You may or may not change your feelings but at least you can form your own opinion based on your own personal experience. Happy diving.”
