There are a lot of great characters in Finding Nemo, which is why we love the movie so much. There's forgettable Dory, fearful Marlin, daring Nemo, and so many others. But one character that really stood out in the film is the "vegetarian" shark, Bruce.
According to Caters News, MacWilliams was on a diving expedition with Emerald Charters scuba diving, which is owned by Capt. Randy Jordan, a renowned "shark whisperer," when he snapped the picture.
"Since it appears as the shark is smiling, it made me smile," MacWilliams told Caters News about the photo.
And it seems others can't help but agree with MacWilliams' sentiments.Still, though the picture is very cute, some Finding Nemo fans are not sure they see the resemblance between the two sharks. And others couldn't help but be reminded of this human who has a very similar smile to the Finding Nemo shark. Whether you think the lemon shark is Bruce's real-life twin or not, all this talk about Finding Nemo has stirred up new excitement about the sequel, Finding Dory, due to release on June 17. Although Bruce hasn't been spotted in any of the trailers yet, one can't help but hope the friendly vegetarian shark will make a reappearance. Bruce would definitely understand Dory's want to find her parents and family and maybe that could lead to Bruce trying to find his father after all this time.
For now though, it seems we'll just have to keep looking at pictures of the real-life Bruce and watching Finding Nemo again to enjoy our favorite shark.
