Carpenter said on "The Early Show"
: "I'm not going to kid you, I was very pleased that there were three-inch stainless steel bars between us, but for the most part, (the shark) was very docile. We were something odd to her and we probably had bizarre electrical signals because our hearts were beating out of our chests. So for two days, she hung out with us. And then on the second day of the trip is when she started getting a little more brave and she started mouthing the cages and coming up to them." Swimming with Great White Sharks
