Florence - The Worlds First Vegetarian Shark

A shark at the Birmingham National Sea Life Center is surprising her handlers - she appears to be the world's first vegetarian shark. Florence, a six-foot nurse shark, started life as a meat-eater, but following an operation in 2009 to remove a rusty hook from her jaw, she has completely stopped eating her normal prey.

In fact, her handlers need to resort to devious tactics to get protein into Florence's diet - such as hiding pieces of fish inside her celery, and even in hollowed-out cucumbers.

How cute is this!!!
