If you treasure your fingers and toes, please keep them in the cage at all times, because this shark is as big as Jaws!
The footage shown in this video shows the largest Great White shark ever caught on film, and she was pregnant at the time too! The 20 foot long female shark is known as Deep Blue, showing her dwarfing the divers in the case of Guadalupe Island, Mexico.

According to a documentary, Deep Blue is recognizable by her scars, which she gained through either fighting or mating through the years, as well as her massive size. Researchers have also noted that she has a large, gaping hole on her right trunk and her dorsal fin and tail seem to be scraped and damaged.

The footage showing the animal swimming with the divers was recorded by a videographer named Mauricio Hoyos Padilla, who then published the video on his Facebook page, where it garnered more than 8 million views, with viewers saying that this is the best video he has ever recorded of the massive aquatic predator.

Mauricio claimed that seeing this ferocious beast in its natural habitat at such a grand age was evidence that the conservation efforts are working.
