Just in time for beach season, Deep Blue, thought to be the largest great white shark to ever be captured on camera, has emerged off the coast of Mexico.
The massive shark can be seen swimming calmly around cage divers off the coast of Mexico’s Guadalupe Island, a popular shark diving destination.
The shark was first filmed by the Discovery Channel for their 2014 Shark Week lineup. However, the shark looks even larger in the latest video (above). Here is the description from that footage:
Deep Blue is one of the biggest great white sharks ever caught on film. Jaws Strikes Back, part of the Shark Week 2014 lineup, was filmed in partnership with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
As you can see from this screenshot, the shark is nearly as big as the 22 foot boat that researchers are on while observing her.
Large great whites are typically in the 15-16 foot range. However, some can grow to gigantic proportions (20-22 feet), like Deep Blue.
