Great white shark grins for camera close-up

A diver has captured a photograph of a great white shark approaching his camera with a toothy grin like that of Bruce, the terror of the 2003 film Finding Nemo.

The great white image was captured by Amos Nachoum, an underwater expert who guides courageous scuba divers to encounters with the large creatures.

Mr Nachoum photographed this 14ft-long predator from just a few feet away in the waters off the coastal Mexican resort of Guadalupe.

The image strongly resembles the toothsome snarl of Bruce, played by Barry Humphries, as he faced Nemo, played by Alexander Gould.

Despite the proximity of a mouthful of razor-sharp teeth, Mr Nachoum insisted he was not in danger.

He said: "I have a 100 per cent safety record. These sharks aren’t the ferocious creatures we see in Jaws. The danger is in your mind."

Finding Nemo was a film about a young clownfish called Nemo, who is stolen from his coral reef home, forcing his timid father to travel to Australia and search Sydney Harbour to find his son.
