Not sure really where to post this but it deserves a look based on the sheer size of this monster shark. I've witnessed a Great White in the ocean
while on a dive in the southern US waters. We were down approximately 50 feet above a wreck and I was filming my mates on the dive below. For
whatever reason I panned up into the clear blue water and literally 2 seconds later I noticed a massive shadow moving towards me appear out of nowhere
at my depth level. Hollywood could not have set this up any better. A massive 15 foot female Great White appeared approximately 15 meters from me
and turned broadside towards me very slowly. I could feel her black eye sizing me up. She was only curious. Non-aggressive in the least. Just
wanted to know what I was. I stayed frozen for what seemed like an eternity while she drifted out of sight back into the blue water where she never
Today I randomly run across this article and immediately I think of my encounter. The one in these shots is unbelievably massive.
15' would be in the pretty normal size range for a female white. Though, I'm pretty sure the largest ones are more around 20 feet. I remember hearing
in Guiness' world records, that the biggest was over 30' long, but that sounds a bit dubious. At that length, it's more like a dang Megaladon!
That is not a photoshop. There are multiple other pics of this dive. Some of it is camera angle but that is a large school of jack fish swimming
around and those are right on par for their natural size and based off of my own personal in water account of a white I would say this one was at
least 20 feet.
