Scientists in Canada have caught a 5.2m long female great white shark, weighing in at more than 1600kg.
The shark is the largest researchers working for Ocearch, an NGO currently tagging white sharks, have sampled in the Northwest Atlantic to date.
Dubbed by some the 'Queen of the ocean', the Ocearch team decided upon 'Nukumi' for her official name - after a "wise old grandmother figure of the Mi'kmaq people".
Nukumi was one of eight great white sharks tagged and released during Osearch's Expedition Nova Scotia in 2020.
The team of researchers were able to tag, sample and release the shark, who will help provide more data for 21 collaborative research projects during the expedition.
"When you handle an animal of this size, it will hit you in a completely different way from an emotional standpoint," Ocearch expedition leader Chris Fischer said.
"You feel this aweness and respect for the animal, its wisdom, what it's done to provide for us all. A deep level of respect."
Photos and videos of the shark went viral on Facebook.
"Holy mackerel," one user commented, "she is a monster!!"
"We need to save our oceans and all the amazing creatures who live in it. How astoundingly beautiful," another wrote.
