Biggest Great White Shark Ever Recorded

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to come face to face with the largest great white shark ever recorded?

They are apex predators, which means they are at the top of the food chain and have few natural predators of their own.


The biggest great white shark ever recorded was spotted in November  2013 by a team of researchers and conservationists who were studying  shark populations in the area.

When and Where

To determine the size of the shark, the research team used a combination  of underwater footage and photographs, as well as measurements taken  from the baited hooks.

How It Was Measured

So, what makes this shark so massive? According to scientists, it’s likely a combination of genetics, age, and diet.

But how?

The shark is estimated to be around 50 years old, which is relatively old for a great white shark.


Despite its size, however, the shark is also surprisingly graceful in  the water, moving with a fluid, an almost hypnotic motion that is both  beautiful and awe-inspiring.

Large beauty

Great white sharks use a variety of hunting techniques to catch their  prey. One of their most famous tactics is breaching, where they launch  themselves out of the water to catch their prey by surprise.

On the hunt

They also use their incredible sense of smell to locate their prey from  great distances, and they can detect a single drop of blood in an  Olympic-sized swimming pool.

Super sense

The migratory patterns of great white sharks are impressive. These  highly mobile creatures are capable of journeying thousands of miles in  search of food and breeding grounds.

Mating patterns

The biggest great white shark on record was an enormous female shark named “Deep Blue.”
