Check out this footage of one of the largest great white sharks ever caught on film, an enormous, more-than-20-foot-long creature named Deep Blue.

They’ve been on this planet far longer than humans. Let’s leave them alone.
John Williams’ “Jaws” theme has been given a heavy metal spin, and I can’t believe how good it is. Marvel at YouTube user 331Erock’s astonishing guitar theatrics as he transforms one of filmdom’s most iconic scores into a shockingly effective piece of hard-charging, head-banging goodness. Turn it up.
This is the radical moment a pair of brothers removed large fishing hooks from an injured hammerhead shark and dragged it back to sea. The big fish was spotted near a beach in Destin, Florida, with the hooks attached to its mouth and steel fishing line tangled in and around its head. I want to believe the Shark coming back was it’s way of saying thanks. These brothers get a bad-ass stamp with oak leaf clusters on their man card. Mad respect.
A great white shark that got stranded on a Cape Cod beach is swimming free thanks to beachgoers who kept splashing water over its gills until rescuers arrived. Witnesses say the 7-foot male shark got stuck near South Beach in Chatham, Massachusetts, as the tide went out. Beachgoers kept the shark wet by splashing it with buckets of water until officials attached a line to its rear caudal fin and Harbormaster Stuart Smith pulled it back into open waters.
Ocean engineer Brennan Phillips led a team to the remote Solomon Islands in search of hydrothermal activity. The main peak of the volcano, called Kavachi, was not erupting during their expedition, so they were able to drop instruments, including a deep-sea camera, into the crater. The footage revealed hammerheads and silky sharks living inside, seemingly unaffected by the hostile temperatures and acidity.
American paraglider Gavin McClurg can aptly be described as adventurous. Some of his notable accomplishments include sailing around the world and flying the Canadian Rockies, and he’s even been nominated as a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year alongside fellow Canadian Will Gadd. But it all might have never happened if a little swim he took in 2001 went another way. So, spoiler: He’s still alive. But the rest of the story? We’re going to let him tell you about that himself.
As Shark Week plays out, divers in South Africa’s Mossel Bay enjoyed an incredible real-life shark moment, involving a massive great white tearing at a hunk of tuna and a surprise breach that was caught on camera. “We sometimes see great whites behave in this way,” Abbott said. “No seal or anything, just a totally random breach. Amazing to see.”
Two men have filmed themselves paddle-boarding alongside great white sharks off the California coast. Hemerick and Joseph Trucksess of San Clemente can be seen moving slowly on stand-up paddle boards next to juvenile great whites measuring 4 to 7 feet in length.

“While shark cage diving, our cage was attacked by a Great White shark. The round buoy attached to the side of the cage was bent in half. Some of the lining of the outside blue barrier bar was bitten through as well. It was quite the up close and personal experience. This was shot with a GoPro Hero 4 wide angle. The shark was even closer than he appears. I apologize for the shakiness.” – Hillary Rae.
A diver with a taste for danger jumped straight into shark-infested waters…because he wanted to get a better filming angle. Forest Galante, 26, was free dive spear fishing off the California coast when he spotted hammerhead shark circling his boat.

The men took a few pictures with this shark at Canova Beach, then released it into the water.
