A dolphin is seen grabbing an iPad at a Florida SeaWorld.

A Florida dolphin is apparently camera shy.

During a recent visit to SeaWorld Orlando, a woman tried to take a photo of dolphins using an iPad, but she apparently got too close to the viewing tank, and one of the animals snatched the iPad right out of her hands.

A video shows the dolphin reaching out of the pool, grabbing the iPad and tossing it into the water.

The woman retrieved the iPad and walked away.

"That dolphin just lunged and reached the lady, which was unbelievable," said Kuadiel Gomez, who shot the video.

Later on the video, a voice on the park’s PA system could be heard saying, “As you can see, the dolphins can reach your loose items.''

It was unclear if the iPad still worked.
