There’s a new video of the world’s biggest shark and it's now as tall as a house

There isn’t really very much that we can say about this other than, shark. Massive, (possibly man-eating) shark. One that's seven metres long.

To put that in perspective we’d like to draw your attention to the fact that most two storey houses are around eight metres tall. This shark is only one metre smaller than a house and this diver is still, for some inexplicable reason that’s probably making his mum have kittens, arsing around on the outside of the shark cage trying to touch the thing.

The great white was spotted off the coast of Guadalupe Island, Mexico, by diving enthusiast (not even a pro) Michael Maier, who caught the beast feeding on bait. The female shark is believed to be around 50-years-old and has been named Deep Blue, which as shark names go is pretty terrible.
