Meet The World’s Largest Shark!
Scuba divers in Hawaii recently had an encounter with “Deep Blue”, believed to be one of the world’s largest Great Whites! Look at the size of her!
As ABC7 reports:
Divers spotted the huge shark, whose size and markings were said to resemble those of Deep Blue, during a Jan. 15 excursion off Oahu’s North Shore, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported. Shark conservationist Ocean Ramsey told the paper she was leading an expedition to monitor tiger sharks feeding on a nearby whale carcass when the massive shark approached their boat.
“She was just this big, beautiful gentle giant wanting to use our boat as a scratching post. We went out at sunrise, and she stayed with us pretty much throughout the day,” Ramsey told the newspaper, adding that the “shockingly wide” shark looked pregnant.
Bravo “Ocean Ramsey!”
Many of the pictures were posted by Ocean Ramsey’s Instagram account – phenomenal pictures of a truly magnificent creature…I now follow her and you should too!
The ABC7 reports goes on to add:
Deep Blue swam into the internet spotlight several years ago when a Discovery Channel film crew spotted her during a Shark Week shoot off Mexico’s Guadalupe Island. In video later shared widely on social media, the gargantuan creature swam up to the crew’s dive cage and poked around curiously before disappearing back into the blue.
At the time, she was estimated to be approximately 20 feet long and was considered to be among the largest great white sharks ever caught on camera. Discovery’s crew pegged her age at more than 50 years.
And as my headline says, this shark doesn’t mind shaking fins!
Here is an amazing video that captures the encounter as well:
I love this stuff, like when my daughter and I came across 8 Humpback Whales off the coast of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico:
It was an incredible wildlife encounter, which you can see here:
