A great white shark, believed to be one of the largest on the planet, has been spotted by divers as it

Deep Blue is over 50 years old, and was caught on camera five years ago in a video that quickly went
«I waited quietly, patiently, observing as she swam up to the dead sperm whale carcass and then slowly to me,» she said. «I gently put my hand out to maintain a small space so her girth could pass».
Ramsey touched the shark as it swam by and, while noting that some divers frown upon this, added that «sometimes sharks seek touch».
