She’s the biggest great white shark ever caught on camera, according to Discovery.

Newly released video shows a pregnant 5,000-pound, 20-foot-long great white shark. The shark, nicknamed Deep Blue, was spotted off the Mexican Coast.

Deep Blue does not appear to be camera shy. The massive shark made headlines back in June when researcher Mauricio Hoyos Padilla defiantly stepped out of his shark cage and “high-fived” the massive creature.

Deep Blue was pregnant at the time of the filming, according to Discovery, making her appear even larger.

    At some point we know that finding the successor to Drew Brees will be the New Orleans Saints’ top priority. What we don’t know is when that time will be. Personally, I don’t think it’s 2017. I’m not particularly enamored with anyone in the draft class and the need at quarterback hasn’t become an absolute must just yet. Next year’s crop could be better and there are some notable signal callers (Jimmy Garropolo, A.J. McCarron) scheduled to hit...more>>
