New Footage of the Largest Great White Ever Filmed
A few months ago, Mexican shark researcher Mauricio Hoyos Padilla posted a video online of a great white shark named “Deep Blue." The shark, a female, also happened to be very, very pregnant. As you might imagine, millions flocked to YouTube to get a glimpse of what was being called the largest great white shark ever filmed. Deep Blue is over 20 feet long, and is estimated to weigh more than 5000 pounds. Experts have put her age at around 50.
Now, Mauricio has found some new footage in his computer that he thought had been lost or accidentally deleted:
Great whites, the largest predatory fish on earth, typically grow to 15 feet in length, with some, like Deep Blue, exceeding 20 feet in length and weighing up to 5,000 pounds, according to National Geographic.
