Cassie said: “I have been diving with many sharks before, but this was the first time I had ever met Snooty.

“I’ve been wanting to meet her for a long time, so when I saw her cruise by me, my heart began to race.

“She is a well known shark in Florida waters for the way her jaw is set, causing her to constantly look like she is smiling.

“She also has a crimped tail but it doesn’t seem to bother her, and we love her even more for it.

“She’s always smiling and happy to be around us!”
