The shark was dead by the time fishermen brought it to the surface, but they were still shocked by their discovery.
“We were amazed and immediately realized that we had a huge, dead, great white shark,” Guadalupe, one of the men who caught the ferocious fish, told reporters. “And then we thought ‘what are we going to do?'”
They dragged the floating shark two miles to shore.
If the shark is truly around 19.8 feet long, it would be one of the longest great whites ever recorded.
