A diver has a close encounter with a massive shark. It's one of the biggest great white sharks ever filmed, according to Discovery.com.

Mexico's Guadalupe Island is a known hot spot for great whites. However, Deep Blue, the nickname given to this massive female shark, may be one of the biggest ever spotted.

Mauricio Hoyos Padilla posted the video to Facebook. The video shows Padilla defiantly step out of a shark cage and “high-fiving” Deep Blue.

Deep Blue was pregnant at the time of the filming, according to Discovery, making her appear even larger. She is estimated at 20-feet in length.

Mobile users can watch the footage here.
