I saw that video today as well on a friends FB page. Guadalupe is a common destination for the long range sport fishing fleet out of SD. I have not been there, but a lot of folks report seeing some massive whites out there. Heck, we are seeing them right off the coast here it seems more often every year..big boys up to 18 ft.. anyway, I won't guess on his length, but what gets me is his, or her, girth.

It's not only the length of the shark, but the bulk of that GW is insane. That has to be the biggest GW I have seen.

That is what came to mind, 1) must be a lady and 2) might have some buns in the oven, seemed to be moving pretty slowly almost lethargically.

6' diameter. 18-20' length.

Had a 16-18' swim under the boat last year. Terrifying. Simply terrifying.

She's a big girl and most likely pregnant. Scientists hypothesize that Guadalupe is a pupping ground for Great Whites.

Regarding the scars, they are most likely mating wounds. When sharks mate the males will bite the females so they can stay mounted. Not sure how GW breeding is but Oceanic Whitetip breeding behavior is real violent with multiple males basically attacking the female.
