While we're a little worried that the largest great white shark ever filmed is coincidentally named after a film in which genetically modified great whites run amok, this video is simply too good not to share.

Deep Blue is 20 feet long, which, in case you were wondering, is approximately too large for a shark to be for us to ever feel truly safe in a large body of water ever again. But she is beautiful, n'est–ce pas?

Mauricio Hoyos Padilla, one of Discovery Channel's Shark Week experts, filmed this clip off the coast of Mexico's Guadalupe Island.

According to Padilla, Blue was apparently pregnant the first time she was filmed by him back in June, when he was filmed high-fiving her (as one does). However, notes that "not even a trained scientist can tell the difference between a pregnant shark and one that has eaten an enormous meal."

Padilla is advocating on behalf of Pelagios Kakuná, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping conservation efforts for great whites. "When I saw Deep Blue for the first time," he writes, "there was just one thought in my mind: Hope. A shark of that size is at least 50 years old and that tells me protection and conservation efforts are really working."
