Sharks are intimidating, no matter their size. But this shark, who is being called “the biggest shark ever filmed” really takes the cake.

A diver named Mauricio Hoyos Padilla, a shark expert who works for the Discovery Channel, captured the footage in Guadalupe Island, Mexico. Experts say the shark is at least 50-years-old, estimated to be more than 20 feet long, and was pregnant at the time of this sighting.
