Jaws-dropping! World's 'biggest great white shark' snapped off Hawaii

A shark said to be'Deep Blue, one of the largest recorded individuals swims offshore Hawaii

Smaller tiger sharks left when the possibly pregnant great white came to dine on the dead whale on Tuesday, Ms Ramsey told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

The Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources said the decomposing whale carcass had drifted to about eight miles south of Pearl Harbor after being towed 15 miles offshore days earlier.

He uploaded a picture of the female great white shark to his Instagram account claiming the beast, believed to be 6.5 metres long, is the largest "ever recorded" adding the species is "severely declining".

She said: "We saw a few tigers and then she came up and all the other sharks split, and she started brushing up against the boat".

In this January 15, 2019 photo provided by Juan Oliphant, Ocean Ramsey, a shark researcher and advocate, swims with a large great white shark off the shore of Oahu.

Great whites are rarely seen around Hawaii as they prefer cooler seas.

As shark news goes, it doesn't get much bigger than this.

Divers have swum with one of nature's most awe-inspiring, handsome and perhaps slightly terrifying, sights: a 21-foot great white shark.

Yes, diving with. Cage-free.

According to the Star Advertiser, Ramsey is now gathering support for legislation to stop the intentional killing of sharks.

"There was a dead sperm whale in the area and we did observe her swimming over to it and eating it on a regular basis throughout the day".

John Richardson, conservation officer at United Kingdom organization The Shark Trust, told CNN that the spotting of Deep Blue is "incredibly exciting". "It fills my heart with joy and takes my breath away", she said.

The team has decided not to disclose the location, for public safety, but shared the incredible moment they were so close to the shark they could actually touch it. "You can't hate them for being predators".

"While it's great to see a "positive" shark-human encounter given global coverage, we must add a note of caution which holds true for interactions with any large, powerful wild animals", Richardson said. I don't want to see great whites are puppies and you should just jump in and pet them.

"We're asking people to stay out of the water around this carcass".

Studies suggest the global shark population has declined by up to 90 per cent in the past 50 years since large-scale fishing began. "Understandably, some people want to get into the water either out of fascination or to get photographs, but it is truly risky to be around this carcass with so much shark activity", agency official Jason Redull said.
