Deep Blue is the name of one gargantuan great white shark and it's just stunning to watch these guys high five it
I love Shark Week. I've been watching the programming (including Shark Week After Dark), and I've seen megamouth sharks, goblin sharks, bull sharks, and of course great white sharks. For me, it's all about size and these guys filmed the largest great white shark ever recorded on film. It's name is "Deep Blue" and they measured it using a buoy called "Chewy" and discovered it was 22 feet long. It's also got a MASSIVE girth meaning it's pregnant with somewhere in the neighborhood of ten five foot long sharks. I have to say, these guys that do the filming are insane. One of the divers high five's "Deep Blue" as it calmly swims on by. It's a huge contrast to how I'd expect a white shark of this size to behave. It's basically like an enormous docile hippo just out for a swim. It makes me think that maybe all this time that sharks have been eating people, maybe they've just been hugging people with their mouths in a kind of "welcome to the ocean."
