On January the 15th, a team of scuba divers had an extraordinary encounter, not far from the Oahu island, Hawaï : a giant female white shark, 6,5 meters long and weighing 2 tons, approached their boat. The photographer and diver Ocean Ramsey (follow her Instagram here) told that, while a herd of tiger sharks was drawing near, the giant female came making them all disperse. According to the group of experts, this animal had the same marks as Deep Blue, the greatest shark ever filmed.

If these images are of course stunning, Ocean Ramsey has been severely criticized, especially by some biologist, such as David Shiffman. Indeed, as he said, the photographer’s behaviour is highly dangerous and even more, hen she tries to instaure a physical contact with the shark. The videos prove that, of course, sharks are not dangerous itself, however, some people make the wrong choices by harrassing the fauna, the scientist says.

In any case, the pictures are going around the Net and they allow to discover agains this colossal animal that surely stir the interest of the scientific community.
