Taiwan great white shark

On May 14, 1997, a huge great white shark caught in a set-net off Hualien County, Taiwan. Gross weight of this animal was 2500 kilograms (5,500 pounds) and total length is claimed at 6.7 to 7.0 meters (~22 feet). This length, however, unconfirmed, and note that forced perspective is used in its only photo. Still, it is considered as possibly the largest great white shark ever recorded.
