A massive great white shark measuring 5.5 metres caught and released by researchers off Mexico

An expedition crew for the TV show Shark Men showing on the National Geographic channel have caught and released what they claim is the biggest great white shark they have caught. They caught the huge beast off Guadalupe Island, Mexico. The male shark measured 17.9 feet or 5.5 metres.

“He was all scarred up and had big marks all over him – you could tell he was just a bad-ass shark,” one of the crew was quoted as saying.

They fitted the shark with a satellite tracking tag so they can study the shark’s migration patterns.

    That’s close to the size of the Great White I observed while snorkeling off the coast of Australia in 2011 with my fiancé.
