Fresh footage of the great white shark called Deep Blue, was captured by NatGeo and it’s crazy.
Deep Blue is one of the largest great whit sharks ever caught and tagged at over 20 feet.
National Geographic is in the middle of its two-week Sharkfest (not to be confused with Discovery’s Shark Week), and they’re going all in on the ocean’s greatest predators.
Jeffries, a Hawaii-based nature and wildlife photographer, had arrived at this spot a couple of miles southwest of Waikiki hoping to catch a glimpse of predators drawn to the floating cetacean feast. Mere moments after she jumped in, something tens of feet below caught her eye: a massive great white shark wending her way up from the deep.
Stretching some 20 feet from tip to tail, it was the famous Deep Blue, one of the largest great white sharks ever caught on film. (Most female great whites average around 15 to 16 feet.) Over three days, Jeffries and her colleagues documented the extraordinary spectacle—while maintaining a respectful distance—as two more mature female white sharks came to chow down on the sperm whale carcass.
