This Monster of a Shark Will Make You Never Want to Swim Again
You will never be able to dip a toe into the ocean again without thinking of this monstrous shark.

One brave diver met face-to-face with possibly the largest great white shark ever seen. The run-in occurred off the coast of Guadalupe Island, where the 20-foot-long creature approached the diver's cage. The diver then reached out of the cage to give the shark a record-breaking high-five.

Watch the whole encounter in the terrifying video below:
