"Shark" photo really just a dolphin

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - You may have seen that great photo of a great white turned out to be a great big fake.

Earlier this week, we showed you a photo supposedly showing a great white feeding in the water just off the tip of Point Loma. It was shown to us by the Shark Research Center. Researchers there are apologizing, saying it was good enough to fool them and a number of their colleagues.

The un-doctored photo shows the creature is really just a dolphin.

Our apologies as well.
