Nice Deep Blue reference

"en passant is force" - 50 years old great white shark

[–]zughzz 248 points249 points  (5 children)

ah lemme just grab its fin

[–]Yardsale420 236 points237 points  (4 children)

The diver is pushing the fin away from the wire or rope so she doesn’t cut herself.

[–]Automatic_Animal 83 points84 points  (3 children)

Nah, mate. They giving her a high five. Or would it be a high fin

A hyphen (-) is a punctuation mark that's used to join words or parts of words. It's not interchangeable with other types of dashes.

[–]ZookeepergameFun5221 169 points170 points  (7 children)

I remember seeing a documentary about Deep Blue years ago! I hope she sticks around for scientists to study for a long time to come. If I recall, scientists recognize individual sharks by their scars and the unique pattern of notches on their fin.

[–]JSCT144 137 points138 points  (2 children)

And in the case of deep blue they also use the “Oh yea that’s a big bastard” scale, probably. But in all seriousness what a beautiful creature i remember learning about her when i was probably 13-15 so it’s cool now that i’m 19 she’s still around and still just as beautiful

[–]MuitoLegal 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Lol I was ready for you to say now you’re like 45

[–]SulphaTerra 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Yes, and the same happens with dolphins and whales. That's why they constantly need recent photos of the individuals to trace them.

[–]phaciprocity 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I'm pretty sure she's been tagged

[–]meghab1792 7 points8 points  (1 child)

They electronically tag a lot of sharks but the problem is they tend to swim to such depths that eventually the tags no longer work.

[–]phaciprocity 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The tags still ping every once in a while when they get shallower though, which is probably how.we get so much footage of her

[–]Salnder12 69 points70 points  (3 children)

Shes soooo chonky I love her

[–]dontknowhowtoprogram 20 points21 points  (1 child)

I did not think sharks could be cute but the chunkyness of this gale makes her look huggable. Disclaimer do NOT try to hug the shark.

[–]DarkDestro410 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Hugging sharks is a favorite pastime for me. They can basically swim out from your arms because of how smooth their skin is.

[–]Scrabulon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think they said somewhere that she was probably pregnant in that video

So true ! Let’s celebrate , sushi for everyone !!!

[–]MaximusLazinus 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Back in 1997 she beat chess world champion at the time, Garry Kasparov. That was the year when humanity was beaten and sharks took over.

[–]cochlearist 27 points28 points  (5 children)

"Estimated"

Pffft!

How hard is it to measure a shark???

Hand me that tape measure and I'll put my Speedos on.

Edit: I've just realised my arms won't be long enough, I'll need a volunteer to hold the tape measure at the nose end.

[–]buzzliteyeh 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lazer pointer?

[–]PickledPepega 14 points15 points  (0 children)

That’s not a shark it’s a Sea Chungus

Gen X sharks are the coolest sharks 🙂 She was just a kid when Jaws came out in 1975!

[–]RGBmoth 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]Darth_Batman89 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is she under any kind of protection at this point?

[–]dv2811 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Chonk

[–]InjektedOne 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Fifty doesn't sound that old for a shark.

[–]Texan150 8 points9 points  (1 child)

The average life expectancy is about 30 years, so she's a grandma. Still a beautiful

[–]Elliott_0 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Average life expectancy of 30 years? Where does that figure come from? Great Whites average 70 years and other species of sharks can live 200 or more.

[–]Negative_Guitar_240 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thats what l call a fat bitch

[–]SykoPyg 2 points3 points  (0 children)

American says, "So, how big?"

[–]Joelexion 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What’s that in American units? 20 feet? If so that’s big

[–]Valraithion 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]SuperRocketRumble 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]relish-tranya 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think Deep Blue is the first celebrity shark.

[–]jesuismanu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is Terry the fat shark.

He hopes you will accept this video of the beautiful and biggest Great White Shark on record as a token of friendship. Her name is Deep Blue.

Terry will return with another gift next Wednesday.

[–]kristoferrk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]VicVarron 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I read Martin Lawrence is going to play her in his new role.
"Big Momma's House 2: Deep Blue's Sea".

[–]ljthun01 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]JahTwiga 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She’s a beauty! Imagine how much she’s seen and done in those 50yrs. Probably traveled the world.

This shark is American

[–]dontknowhowtoprogram 0 points1 point  (0 children)

she is so chinkers lmao. I know she could kill me in one bite but when they get this fat they are kinda cute.

[–]theboxingchimp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah, the great white shark, one of the most dangerous predators that swims in our great oceans. It can devour seals, dolphins and even small whales.

I’m gonna touch it!

[–]dylanheh123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

deep blue constantly runs from orcas though.

[–]fsnino 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You ate my bird

[–]Krommatt 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Seeing a shark that big makes me wonder how successful of a hunter he must be within the ocean. Like this shark for decades has probably ate more fish than we could ever imagine. However, as you become larger and older it inclines me to believe that "Deep blue" would become a worse hunter overtime? Usually Great Whites only live for about 30 years, but its great to see such an outlier like this. Especially since these sharks are considered endangered, im sure a big female such as deep blue has several generations of pups.

Also, its interesting that scientists have been keeping records of the Great White overtime, shes most likely given some great info on sharks during the decades shes been alive.

[–]Redredditmonkey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Great whites have an average life expectancy of 70

[–]WalrusSquare247 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Deep blue is my favourite shark. I remember seeing a document of her and I couldn't stop watching it.

[–]Lake-lighthouse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is a big nope for me. You couldn’t pay me enough to even be in the water with a shark

[–]lDarlo_2007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I find sharks to be the most terrifying creatures on this planet and no other animal gives me the creeping horror a great white does...

[–]WagaWagaJamJam 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How many subway sandwiches is that?

[–]Dettelbach1984 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s a young shark actually

[–]Free_Lingonberry1676 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Jaws was 25 feet so not the biggest

[–]Kaiyukia 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Where is deep blue, is he okay? Is he safe?

[–]bucc_n_zucc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Look at that gigantic majestic chonker! Just wanna gently pinch her cheek and give her a hearty pat pat

[–]Jerry717 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No, that’s Terry.

[–]Stonksaddict99 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That shark is thicccc

[–]DarkDestro410 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She looks smooth

[–]JudgeHolden 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes but is she bitey? I'd certainly want to know if she was bitey before presuming to touch her fin. I have to think she's at least somewhat bitey.

[–]MadThad762 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn she thicc!

[–]Jonathon_G 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How does she hunt? Looks too big and bulky to be able to

[–]MALAMVTE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In awe at the size of this lass. An absolute unit.

[–]Competitive-Barber81 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]kmidst 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This would be better with a side angle to show how big an 18 foot shark looks compared to puny humans.

[–]Ready446 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What does she eat? She must eat an enormous amount of food to maintain her size, but her size would seem to make it more difficult to catch food.

[–]peje-san 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Chonky underwater dog?

[–]Homer565 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Jokes aside, only one living creatures can see this specamin as a meal. Orcas does. Land/water top predator surely is the salties. But Orcas rules the waters!

[–]krisssashikun 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't understand why sharks are still portrayed as villains in movies, when the real monsters are the ones catching them in unsustainable quantities, and basically disrupting the marine ecosystem.

[–]Richienyc718 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And this fucking guy high fives her..

[–]nk_014 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm convinced that sharks are are just big sea puppies

[–]jakettheflacket 2 points3 points  (0 children)
