Santa Claus takes plunge to feed shark in Malta

STORY: The watery Scuba Claus, helped by an elf, plunged into a huge fish tank in Malta's National Aquarium in Qawra to hand out treats to sharks and fish - but only those who had been well-behaved throughout the year.

Father Christmas didn't hand out any presents though - the aquarium fish will just have to wait until Christmas Day like everyone else.

The aquarium is located in Qawra, in the northern part of the island, and hosts more than 175 different species of various animals, including fish, mollusks, reptiles and insects.
