KILLING MACHINES: JAW-DROPPING pictures show the world's biggest great white sharks from a 20ft beast named Deep Blue to a ferocious predator called Ironbound.

Deep Blue is biggest great white ever recorded, weighing in at a whopping 2.5 tons.

The mammoth female was last spotted off the coast of Hawaii devouring the carcass of a dead sperm whale in 2019.

She had previously been caught on camera 2,600 miles away just off Mexico's west coast in July 2018.

Brave divers leapt into the water to take pictures with the apex predator, with the 50-year-old shark dwarfing the divers as they swam side-by-side.

The beautiful ocean beast was last caught on camera 2,600 miles away just off Divers Mark Mohler and Kimberly Jeffries were able to identify her as Deep Blue thanks to a tag she was implanted with when she appeared at another spot near Mexico two decades ago.

Mr Mohler said: "My first reaction was just disbelief .

"She followed three tiger sharks in toward the whale carcass, and her sheer size made them look like barracudas."

WHITE DEATH
In July 2016, an enormous shark, nicknamed the White Death, was snapped off the coast of Guadalupe, Mexico.

The exact measurement of the great white were not taken, but a visual comparison with the current record holder suggests the shark in these pictures could be a world record contender.

QUEEN OF THE OCEAN
This female great white shark, weighing at a near two tons, has been dubbed a “true queen of the ocean” by researchers.

Nukumi was captured by a team of marine biologists from the non-profit research organisation, OSEARCH off the coast of Nova Scotia in October 2020.

Researchers named her Nukumiafter the legendary wise grandmother figure of the Mi’kmaq people.

She is the largest shark of its kind was found in the northwest Atlantic.

The great white measures more than 17ft long and weighs over one and a half tonnes - with researchers estimating she is 50-years-old.

The average female is 15-16 ft long, while males reach 11-13 ft.

HAOLE GIRL
In January 2019, researchers mistook footage of newly discovered 'Haole Girl' for Deep Blue.

At the time of the spotting, Haole Girl - who was pregnant at the time - was estimated to be over 20 ft long and over 8 ft wide.

The predator was named by the diver that first reported her.

On January 13, she was spotted feeding on a decaying sperm whale carcass about 20 miles off the Hawaiin shore of Oahu.

IRONBOUND
Ironbound is named after West Ironbound Island near Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

The 53-year-old male measures 12 ft 4 inches and weighs around 452kg.

His last pinged location was in La Have Bank/ Nova Scotia, Canada on October 25.

According to the Pensacola News Journal, a 'ping' takes place when a tagged shark's dorsal fins break the surface of the water and transmits a signal to a satellite.

The north-east region of the States is used to shark sightings.

Earlier this year, The Sun reported America has overtaken Australia for the number of attacks with Cape Cod, Massachusetts, now considered the shark capital of the world.
