Biggest Great White Shark Ever Caught On Camera Swims Next To Divers (Video)
We're gonna need a bigger video player.
Unhinged by the burdens of gravity and a lack of space, ocean creatures have the ability to grow to mystifying sizes.
The novelty of being in the presence of one of these creatures quickly turns into horror, though, when the animal in question is known for its ability to rip smaller animals to shreds.
That's what makes this video of aquatic researcher Mauricio Hoyos Padilla nonchalantly interacting with Deep Blue, the largest great white shark ever captured on video, mind-blowingly impressive.
Padilla found a never-before-seen video of the 20-foot shark he captured back in 2014 for a Shark Week special, and on Monday, he uploaded the footage to Facebook.

I hate that guy who is not in the cage. He needs to get back in the cage, so I don't have a panic attack. Please go back in the cage.
Back in June, Padilla uploaded footage of himself actually petting (please stop petting) Deep Blue.

It is believed Deep Blue is that size because the shark is actually currently pregnant (cute?).
Padilla uploaded the video with the hope of raising money and awareness for Pelagios Kakunjá, an organization protecting great whites like Deep Blue and studying the migratory patterns of ocean predators.
I'm never going near water ever again. Seriously, someone tell that effing guy to get back in the cage.
