Sam Booth and her son James were walking along the Barbican in Plymouth when they saw the beautiful creature swimming along.

residents who spoke PlymouthLive believed the creature to be a so-called “starry smooth hound” – a type of shallow water shark.

Sam and her son captured incredible photos that capture the long, skinny shark up close as it swims along the surface of the water with distinctive white speckles on its back.
