If you think you’ve seen the largest great white shark in the ocean, think again. Newest video of a 20-foot-long great white shark surfaced from the Internet. This is the largest great white shark ever shot on video.
The great white shark was caught swimming around divers near the Island of Guadalupe in Mexico. Mauricio Hoyos Padilla, an aquatic researcher, was the one who filmed the whole video. The shark was first recorded in 2011. It was during the filming of a Shark Week special when the shark emerged from the deep blue sea.
The shark’s name is Deep Blue, and she is pregnant, one contributing factor to her massive size. The only difference between the 2014 footage and the new footage is that she is now more aggressive, strikes the divers, and smashes her body to the cage.
Padilla released this latest video in an attempt to raise awareness and donations for the protection of Deep Blue and other great whites in the Mexican Pacific through his organization, Pelagios-Kakunja.
