The Biggest Great White Shark Ever Filmed

Off the western coast of Mexico‘s Baja California, Guadalupe Island (map) is a shark mecca, drawing people from around the world hoping to catch a glimpse of one of these majestic creatures.

Divers recently exploring the area weren’t disappointed.

Biologist Mauricio Hoyos Padilla posted a Facebook video of what he claims is the biggest great white shark ever filmed: An approximately 20-foot (6-meter) long female dubbed Deep Blue.

According to the California Department of Fish and Game, great white sharks can grow up to 21 feet (6 meters) long.
