The biggest shark ever filmed is basically the size of a blimp

Hey look, it’s Jaws in real life. Which should scare the bones out of land dwelling ol’ me but the sheer size of this giant monster great white shark is so ridiculously huge (I mean, it’s more blimp than shark), that I can’t help but laugh. Look at it dwarf the entire cage and treat that daredevil of a scuba diver as some peon fish not even worth eating.

When you’re that big, humans are fun size snacks that only make you hungrier. The shark in the video, recorded by marine biologist Mauricio Hoyos Padilla, is the famous Deep Blue. It’s 20 feet long (and maybe pregnant!) and is one of the biggest sharks ever caught on film. Watch her below if you want to never go into the ocean again.
