GoPro Captures Great White Shark 'Smiling For The Camera'

CHATHAM (CBS) – What has this great white shark in such a good mood?

The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy shared a picture Friday of a shark showing off its pearly (and sharp) whites for a GoPro camera. The encounter took place during a research trip on Thursday.

Several Facebook commenters observed that the shark appeared to be smiling.

Last week, the conservancy captured video of a white shark biting a GoPro camera, giving researchers a great view of its teeth and wrinkles on its tongue.
