Huge 13ft great white shark is found off Nova Scotia coast

Researchers have discovered a 13-foot great white shark with two large bite marks on his head that they suspect were inflicted by an even larger predator.

Crews from the non-profit OCEARCH uncovered the shocking injuries when they pulled the 1,164-pound beast – whom they named Vimy- out of the water during a shark-tagging expedition off Nova Scotia earlier this month.

‘It was clear that something had just grabbed his entire head,’ OCEARCH Chairman Chris Fischer told McClatchy newsgroup on Wednesday.

‘It was a very large animal that grabbed it, something significantly bigger… anything that can grab an animal like that by the head is pretty impressive’.

Researchers theorized that a fresh bite mark on top of Vimy’s head had only been sustained within the previous week, and that the culprit was likely to have measured in at 15-feet.

Fischer says his crews even spotted a 17-foot shark in the same vicinity shortly before capturing Vimy, but it escaped before it could be tagged.
