Great white: Minnesota snow shark draws national attention

The Bartz brothers of New Brighton have completed their latest snow sculpture masterpiece – a giant shark that fills their front yard.

Now the teens are getting national attention for the feat. The Today show featured the story on Monday, noting that the three teens – Connor, Trevor and Austin – said they spent more than 90 hours creating the massive snow sculpture – and it beat spending time on their cellphones.

The story also gained traction on the social site Reddit.

WCCO notes that this is the third year in a row the brothers have created a snow sculpture – the previous two were also marine animals, a pufferfish, and last year, a walrus.

“We like to see people’s enjoyment, and we like to see people smile, take pictures,” Connor told WCCO. “We also like to spend time with each other.”

The fins and the tail were perhaps the trickiest part of the shark to sculpt and took 10 hours to create, KARE 11 reports.

Check out this one-minute video that shows the shark coming to life:
