(FOX NEWS) – The great white shark known as “Deep Blue” is nearly 20 feet long and is thought to be the largest great white ever caught on film.
Shark conservationist Mauricio Hoyos Padilla captured footage of the massive beast nearly three years ago, while doing work for Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week” programming. At the time, “Deep Blue” was pregnant.
In the video above, “Deep Blue” swims up to the cage and a diver pushes the shark as it pokes around before it eventually swims away. Hoyos Padilla captured the incredible footage near Guadalupe Island, off the west coast of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula.
It’s estimated that “Deep Blue,” who has become so famous it has its own Twitter account, is nearly 50 years old, Discovery found.
According to a 2014 study, great white sharks have an average lifespan of 70 years, though it varies between male and females.
