Researchers off Cape Cod get up close and personal with a smiling shark

(WHDH) — Researchers in the waters off Cape Cod recently captured a stunning image of a curious, smiling shark.

The shark had a grin to rival Bruce in the Disney movie Finding Nemo.

The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy says the shark swam right up to a GoPro camera during a recent trip.

Numerous shark sightings have been reported this summer on Cape Cod.

On Thursday, two beaches in Chatham were closed due to shark sightings.
