The shark, which can be seen to have a shattered fin, surrounded the two divers in the new online video that has gone viral. It is estimated that the war-devastated shark is about 30 years old and has such a large diameter that a fan compared it to the “megalodon,” which was so gigantic that it actually bit other sharks.
The nail biting clip shows the two divers waiting in the cage for something to appear when a great white shark suddenly emerges and throws itself against a piece of bait a few meters from the faces of the divers.
Instagram users have been speculating on how the shark got its wounds, the Instagram profile @creatures_of_the_deep Where it was loaded suggests that it comes from previous fights.
“These old wounds will have arisen from both battles for dominance and resistance to prey, and show how this girl gained her size and power.” At some point, he even lost the upper part of his caudal fin!
Other Instagram users have speculated where they believe their injuries come from.
One user said “They are mating scars”
Another added: “Battle wounds underwater”
A third replied: “From a boat?”
The video was first published by the YouTube channel Shark Diver, but has since gone viral after it was shared by creaturesof_the_deep on Instagram two days ago, with shark fans watching the clip more than 112,000 times.

Reports suggest that the incident occurred in California, USA. UU.
The shark has garnered many compliments online for its appearance.
Fans have described “her” as a “beautiful animal” and another describing the shark as “Majestically magnificent.”
This assessment occurs when a published report states that the hooks are damaging a “surprising number of sharks.”
A new article published in Fisheries Research shows that 38 percent of tiger sharks that live near Tahiti have at least one hook caught in them or show signs of having been previously hooked by a hook.
A residual hook “can have profound consequences for these animals,” said Carl Meyer, a marine biologist at the University of Hawaii, in a press release. “You can injure or even kill them because they can’t feed properly after these interactions.”
Hooks made of degradable materials could alleviate the problem, according to new research.
However, it should not be forgotten that these beautiful creatures can be deadly, only yesterday came the news that a 21-year-old diver had been eaten by three sharks in Western Australia.
The young footballer had been on vacation with friends when he slipped and fell into the ocean while walking on rocks.
The friends had tried desperately to save him, however, it was already too late.
