A newlywed couple from Southington, Connecticut, had an unforgettable honeymoon in South Africa — including a close encounter with a great white shark, NECN reported.

Tiffany Levesque and Spencer Reilly were shark diving earlier this month when a great white lunged at the cage to grab bait, according to the news station. The shark’s massive jaw closed on the cage before it turned and quickly swam away.

No one was hurt. In fact, Reilly said the great white, which wasn’t even full grown, didn’t scare him at the time.

“It didn’t seem dangerous or crazy when it was happening,’’ he told NECN.
