New pictures and video taken by divers show what could possibly be the largest great white shark ever caught on camera, CNN Travel reports. Deep Blue, a plus-year-old great white first documented 20 years ago, was spotted off the coast of Hawaii recently in a rare close encounter. Divers were filming tiger sharks feeding on a sperm whale carcass south of Oahu when Deep Blue swam up and began scratching herself on their boat. They accompanied the shark in the water for the rest of the day, even getting close enough to touch her at times. Deep Blue is roughly 20 feet long and weighs an estimated 2 tons—likely making her one of the largest great whites alive. The record for biggest great white shark ever is often disputed , with some outlets listing an alleged foot shark recorded in the s as the record-holder.
The great white shark Carcharodon carcharias , also known as the great white , white shark or white pointer , is a species of large mackerel shark which can be found in the coastal surface waters of all the major oceans. The great white shark is notable for its size, with larger female individuals growing to 6. The great white shark has no known natural predators other than, on very rare occasions, the killer whale.

It was tagged by scientists when it was last spotted of the coast of Mexico more than 20 years ago. Mark Mohler and Kimberly Jeffries saw the shark feasting on a dead sperm whale on Sunday, boldly swimming alongside the seven-metre giant and capturing stunning pictures of the experience. It can be seen chomping on the whale in videos recorded by the divers shortly after a gam of tiger sharks first made the discovery, feeding on the carcass before Deep Blue arrived. Researchers believe the great white managed to grow so large due to its age. Along with other activists, Ms Jeffries has called for a bill to be re-introduced in the Hawaii legislature that would ban the killing of sharks and stingrays, typically for their fins, which are considered a delicacy in several international cuisines.
