Remember Jaws? We think we found him in real life.
Shark researcher Mauricio Hoyos Padilla recently uploaded a video to YouTube showing what is believed to be the largest great white shark in the world. The footage shows the enormous, 20-foot-long beast named “Deep Blue” swimming near researchers in steel cages, with one of them
foolish brave enough to actually venture out and touch it.
Ol’ Blue was actually featured last year in a documentary by the Discovery Channel, but the researcher found this new footage on his computer only recently and wanted to share it, according to Fox.
There’s a bit of a twist though. This seemingly ferocious predator is actually an up-and-coming mom. Discovery reports that her pregnancy made her appear even larger than normal in Padilla’s footage.
We suppose we could call that cute.
