Excuse the cheesy title its not mine i took it from the article. Apparently the worlds largest great white was captured on film by some free divers off the coast of Hawaii. They were watching some tiger sharks feed on a whale carcass when the great white arrived. It believed to be a pregnant female measuring six metres long and weight around two and a half tonnes.

news.sky.com...

Now I love diving when I get the chance, I doubt I'd ever put myself in a cage and tease a great white. But these swimmers are literally within touching distance of one of the most deadly animals on the planet and they are just in wetsuits now that's some guts right there.
What intrigued me In the article this was mentioned ...
'But Deep Blue instead "swam away escorted by two rough-toothed dolphins...'

Now we hear stories about dolphins protecting divers from sharks im wondering if their presence prevented the divers from being attacked, probably not but it makes you wonder

The shark had just fed on a dead whale, when great whites are well fed they are not very aggressive I guess. Personally I wouldn’t get in the water with it no matter what. But then again I’m deeply afraid of large water predators, something about being out of your element and completely submerged in theirs.

That's a possibility I suppose but I'm sure a shark that size would of still had some little bit of room to chop a puny human inside its stomach lol. Like I said I love diving I love swimming but that scares the living crap outta me

Damn, that's a big girl!

Sharks get a bad rap, they aren't looking to attack people generally(Tigers and Bullsharks are bad). Sometimes it happens, they are just curious and take a test nibble..which can be devastating unfortunately. And sometimes they just take the opportunity presented(if hungry).
Humans generally do not have the fat content big sharks like.

It's possible the dolphins presence may have kept curiosity at bay, or could be close to giving birth and not interested in a battle.

One of the shark's teeth is broken.

ETA: maybe not broken; falling out. It's on its side.

If she's just got done gorging on dead whale, human isn't really all that worth the effort. The most she'd maybe do is take an exploratory bite.

Pretty common, they have rows of replacements behind the existing tooth..it will eventually be pushed out by the replacement.

Yes, it's pretty cool to zoom in on. She's been around for a while.

I totally agree they have definitely being given a bad rep especially through films such as jaws. I have to up most respect for them. Majority of the attacks on humans are due to humans looking like their prey.

For sure, they can live to be 70. Apparently they keep growing their whole life, so she is definitely an old timer.

Yes, we aren't on the menu for the most part, but throw on some flippers and you might appear seal-like.
Jaws was a bad time for all sharks.

World's biggest great white shark, let's get in, swim with it, pet it and take pictures!

Wow, not sure if brave or stupid but impressive nonetheless.

In the article it says they were filming tiger sharks (i think) feeding on a whale carcass and that's when the great white appeared. Apparently the other sharks scattered when the great white appeared which i would of done as well leaving a trail of brown coloured water (sorry to lower the tone)

Why would the shark eat the diver? Did you see the pic — the diver is smokin’ hot!

Sorry for being a dude. 🤪

Exactly , Im a diver too, Ive dove with sharks many many times........they arent the mindless feeding machines people think they are.....

MOST of the time 98%, it takes a specific set of circumstances to illicit a bite from a shark, even just an exploratory bite.....

Great whites arent even the most dangerous or aggressive, the problem is their size.......when they actually DECIDE to bite, its more often to be fatal just because of the enormous area they chomp down on.....

Dive with some bullsharks sometime lol

And there i was trying to keep it PC friendly by not saying how do these divers stay afloat with the weight of their massive cahoonies, after realising one of the divers was female. But you've made me say it now lol.
