The gigantic great white sent ripples across the world when she was first caught on camera in 2014 off the coast of Guadalupe Island in Mexico. When researcher Mauricio Hoyos Padilla posted a clip of her in 2015, it instantly went viral. It's thought Deep Blue may have been pregnant when first discovered, as female great while tend to remain in solitude at high depths until they are ready to give birth, according to Surf Researcher.

    A massive, nearly 1,000lb great white shark known as Ironbound was spotted swimming off the Jersey Shore, the site of the infamous 1916 shark attacks that inspired the film Jaws.  Ironbound - who hails from Nova Scotia and measures 12 feet, 4 inches - made his way to the Jersey Shore as he continues traveling up north to Canada, according to OCEARCH, an nonprofit marine research group that tracks shark migrations.  OCEARCH's chief scientist Bob Hueter said Ironbound, who weighs 998lbs and is likely 20 years old, was first tagged on October 3, 2019, in Nova Scotia and has been spotted multiple times in the U.S.  'When we tagged him, he was impressive,' Hueter told CNN of the shark's first sighting.

    THIS is the terrifying moment a giant great white shark tries to smash through a divers' cage. The jaw-dropping moment was captured by brave underwater photographer Euan Rannachan who had been visiting the shark-infested waters of Guadalupe Island off the coast of Mexico. 6A menacing great white tries to smash through a divers' cageCredit: mediadrumimages/@euanart 6Another emerges from the water with a sinister grinCredit: mediadrumimages/@euanart 6Euan Rannachan braved the shark-infested waters of Guadalupe Island off the coast of Mexico to take these incredible snapsCredit: mediadrumimages/@euanart The stomach-churning images show a menacing 15-foot-long great white launches itself at two divers in a cage underwater.

    A baleen whale was lunch for a giant shark — possibly a megalodon — some 12–15 million years ago, bite marks on a fossilised flipper bone (or 'radius') have revealed. Perhaps fortunately for the whale, it was most likely dead at the time and floating at the sea surface when the shark scavenged it, Calvert Marine Museum experts said. Analysis of the damage inflicted to the radius suggests that one shark repeatedly sunk its teeth into the corpse, thrashing its head back and forth to tear off each bite. As is standard for so-called 'trace fossils' — evidence of animal behaviour — the bite marks were given their own species name, that of 'Linichnus bromleyi'. The 11-inch-long bone was found at Parkers Creek, in Maryland's Calvert County, by local fossil collector William Douglass, and donated to the Calvert Marine Museum. Identifying the exact shark species that left the bite marks is difficult — but suspects include a young Otodus megalodon, the largest shark ever known to have lived. Megalodon was an extinct mackerel shark thought capable of growing up to 65 feet in...
    The phrase 'jumped the shark' originated from an episode of hit '70s comedy TV show Happy Days when The Fonz inexplicably stopped being the world's coolest dude and jumped over a caged shark on water-skis. The excruciating scene became synonymous with anything that was once popular and deemed 'cool' but suddenly loses relevance after a woefully misguided attempt at generating publicity or attention spectacularly backfires. As I perused all the coverage from last night's Met Gala, never have the words 'jumped the shark' seemed more ironically relevant. Where do I even start with this towering monument to hilarious hypocrisy and horrifically hideous 'haute couture'? Well, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems a good place for an opening salvo. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has spent the past few years lecturing the entire world on the planet-ending evils of materialistic, vacuous, obscenely ostentatious capitalism. Yet here she was prancing about on the red carpet at the most materialistic, vacuous, obscenely ostentatious example of capitalism imaginable – surrounded by hundreds of the wealthiest and most privileged people in American society Tickets for the Met Gala cost...
    A YOUNG boy found a shark tooth while on vacation – and some think it may be from a prehistoric sea monster. Xander Buck, five, found a prehistoric megalodon tooth in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, on Tuesday. 3Kelly Buck described her son as an avid tooth hunterCredit: Kelly Robison Buck/Facebook The large tooth measured 3.25-by-2.25 inches found in the sands of Ocean Creek Resort, according to his mother Kelly Buck. "Our whole family loves hunting for shark teeth," Buck told Fox News.  "Xander and my husband were searching in the swash during low tide when Xander spotted this one in the mud." Megalodon teeth aren’t of huge scientific interest because thousands wash ashore in the Southeast. 3The large tooth measured 3.25-by-2.25 inchesCredit: Kelly Robison Buck/Facebook However, they are prized items for amateur collectors competing to get the largest most pristine they can find, said Hans Sues, the senior scientist for the Department of Paleobiology at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. Before going extinct, megalodon swam across the world’s oceans 3.6million to 20million years ago. They were the largest...
    They ruled the seas for millions of years as one of the most fearsome predators on Earth. But new estimates suggest gigantic megalodon sharks were actually even bigger than previously thought – measuring up to 65ft (19.8 metres) in length rather than 50ft (15.2 metres).  Growing to the size of a cricket pitch, it was the most massive shark species to have ever lived and was three times the size of today's largest great whites.  Scroll down for video Gigantic: New estimates suggest megalodon sharks were actually even bigger than previously thought – measuring up to 65ft in length rather than 50ft. They grew as big as the size of a cricket pitch, and three times the size of today's largest great whites (a comparison is shown) New equations for calculating a megalodon's size based on the width of shark teeth (pictured) rather than height were developed after a math exercise for high school students went wrong HOW BIG WAS THE MEGALODON?  The biggest megalodons would likely have had a head around 15ft long, a 5ft 4in dorsal...
    THERE have been reported sightings of the giant megalodon despite the creature having gone extinct millions of years ago. But when and where has the megalodon been spotted? Here is everything you need to know... 2The giant megalodon died out 2.6million years agoCredit: Alamy Are megalodon's extinct? Yes the megalodon is extict. They dominated the oceans for 13 millennia before they died out 2.6million years ago.  Megalodons grew up to 60ft (18 metres) long and weighed 100 tons, feasting on whales and great white sharks during the Pliocene era. Despite the species being extinct, although there has been a number of "sightings". Seamen in the 1900s have given accounts of spotting the prehistoric creatures while in more recent years conspiracy theorists have claimed that the gigantic sharks still roam the seas. Despite these accounts, the majority of experts are adamant that there’s no evidence that the giant predator still exists. Scientists believe the mighty megalodon - star of the Jason Statham film The Meg - might have been wiped out when Earth was hit by cosmic radiation 2.6m years ago. The killer...

    There are a number of deep sea creatures that glow-in-the-dark, but a team studying marine life have the first ‘giant luminous shark.’ Researchers spotted the kitefun shark off the eastern coast of New Zealand during a survey last year, along with two others - a blackbelly lanternshark and southern lanternshark, which also posses bioluminescence. The kitefin shark can grow nearly six feet long and typically lives 984 feet below sea level, deeming it the largest known glowing vertebrate. All three of the unique creatures live in an area of the ocean called the ‘twilight zone,’ which stretches 3,200 feet below sea level and out of reach of light. The study suggests that due living in a region without light, there is no place for the sharks to hide and they use their glowing bodies as a camouflage – they appear backlit against the bright surface of the water.

    HUGE megalodon sharks that ruled the oceans over three million years ago were bigger than most human adults from birth. This is according to new research into the scary ancient creatures that claims the sharks were around 6.5 foot (2 metres) when they first left the womb. 3 The new research focused on X-rays of fossilised bones from the spine of a megalodon. Evidence of megalodons has been found in the form of fossils and teeth in oceans all over the world. They are thought to have died out around three million years ago. Lots of researchers think the adults grew to around 50 foot when they were fully grown. 3Lots of megalodon shark teeth have been found but never an entire skeletonCredit: Getty Images - Getty However, other research suggests they could have grown up to 59 feet (18 metres). The new study, led by Professor Kenshu Shimada, explains that the reseachers "examined incremental growth bands in fossil vertebrae of a 9.2-m-long individual O. megalodon, revealing that the shark was born large, 2 m in length, and died at age...

    Gonna need a bigger kayak. Fisherman Matthew Smith was confronted by a giant great white shark on Saturday while fishing for snapper off the coast of Black Head Beach in New South Wales, Australia. FLORIDA FISHERMAN SHATTERS GEORGIA'S BLUE CATFISH RECORD WITH 111-POUND CATCH, SAYS HOLDING IT UP 'WAS HELL' The terrifying encounter, part of which was filmed via a drone camera flown by his friend, Nick O’Brien, Smith told Australian outlet 9News Sydney, shows the 13-foot shark circling Smith in his small kayak.
