A group of divers in Hawaii had a rare experience when they managed to swim with a great white shark’ of gigantic proportions.
Some of the divers were so close to the shark that they managed to touch it, and naturally, they lived to tell the tale.
The female shark was six metres long, and it appears she was attracted by the carcass of a whale which a number of tiger sharks were already feeding off of.
It is believed that this enormous shark is a Deep Blue, which was named by scientists who discovered it 20 years ago.
Deep Blue is around 50 years old, and everything indicates that it is ready to lay eggs. Great white sharks which are pregnant are less likely to attack human beings.
