Shark bite with a difference! Fisherman goes viral after deceptively cute smiling lemon shark bites boat’s motor
A fisherman has gone viral after facing a shark bite with a difference when a deceptively cute ocean monster bit his boat – with a smile.
Self-employed fisherman James Munroe was fishing for barracuda off Current Island in the Bahamas last week when an approximately 4ft lemon shark took the bait from his line.
James, who lives on the Bahaman island of Eleuthera, was just about to cut the fishing line to let the animal go when it suddenly came from the deep and latched onto the boat’s engine.
He captured the incredible moment the shark appeared to flash him a toothy grin as it held onto the engine – and his social media post has now racked up thousands of likes, shares and comments.
James said: “I was so shocked – I didn’t expect that at all.
“I cut the line and shook the engine slightly and he came off.”
