Stunning images show the “largest great white shark ever” as a 20-foot, 2.5-ton Deep Blue spotted prowling

STUNNING images show a massive 20ft great white shark believed to be the largest to ever roam the ocean.

Weighing 2.5 tons that breaks the scales, the mighty beast known as Deep Blue measures an incredible 2.5m tall with huge fins and razor-sharp teeth.

Deep Blue measures a staggering 20 feet in length

Stunning snaps show the fascinating creature, believed to be in its 50s, as little grebes dare to swim alongside.

The gigantic tall white man caused a worldwide sensation when he was first caught on camera off the coast of the Mexican island of Guadalupe in 2014.

When researcher Mauricio Hoyos Padilla published a clip of her in 2015, it immediately went viral.

It is suspected that Deep Blue was pregnant when she was first discovered, as large females tend to remain in solitude at great depths until ready to give birth, according to Surf Researcher.

The beautiful sea monster was in front of the camera again in July 2018 off the west coast of Mexico.

Divers Mark Mohler and Kimberly Jeffries were able to identify her as Deep Blue thanks to a tag implanted in her, while marine experts also recognized the unique markings on her body.

Experts believe Deep Blue is the largest great white creature ever seen, and has been alive for more than five decades – despite often life-shortening pollution, hunting, and fishing.

Despite their notoriety as dangerous sharks, experts say Deep Blue doesn’t have an aggressive personality.

Previously, images showed marine biologist Ocean Ramsey swimming side-by-side with the creature while holding one of its flippers.

Her seemingly docile behavior has been attributed in part to the fact that she had just fed on a whale carcass.

The shark takes its name from Discovery Channel diver Mauricio Hoyos Padilla, who swam with the creature as part of a Shark Week documentary.

Padilla was filmed on the 2015 TV show reaching his hands out of a metal shark cage and touching her fin.

Great whites are rarely seen in Hawaii as they prefer seas with cooler temperatures.

But there’s another shark that holds the top spot for size.

Two cage divers came face to face with a fearsome shark in Guadalupe, Mexico in incredible images showing the giant apex predator swimming perilously close to the brave couple.

And while it wasn’t possible to get an exact measurement, the colossal animal looked like it could be bigger than the 20-foot shark Deep Blue, which currently holds the title of the world’s largest white shark.

It comes after stunning images showed the massive size of another of the world’s largest great white sharks as the animal tracked US coasts.

The colossal creature called Ironbound measures 12ft 4in and weighs around a whopping 452kg.

The mighty shark was first tagged in October 2019 in waters around Nova Scotia, Canada.

Since then, Ironbound has traveled an estimated 13,000 miles, according to marine research group OCEARCH.
