In the video, Deep Blue approaches a cage with a diver inside, poking it with her nose and lingering around. The diver reaches out and gently touches her front fin before she eventually swims away.
Hoyos Padilla captured the incredible footage off the coast of Mexico’s Guadalupe Island. At the time, conservationists confirmed, Deep Blue was pregnant.
Today, it’s estimated that Deep Blue is around 50 years old. Great whites can live to around 70 years old in the wild. But today, sharks aren’t living nearly as long as they used to — and in turn, not growing as large as they once did.
