Giant Shark a Rare Find

Updated: Feb 5, 2008 04:18 PM EST


Dr. Eric Vetter


By Walter Makaula

MOLOKAI (KHNL) -- If you thought the movie 'Jaws' was scary, imagine what oceanographers thought when they saw a shark bigger than their submarine, swimming just feet away from them.

It happened in Hawaiian waters just off the coast of Moloka'i. It's a rare deep sea ocean find captured on video off the northeast coast of the island. Most sharks are known to have just five gills and although some have been spotted before with six, never before like this giant.

You can clearly see all six gills. Professors from UH Manoa and HPU estimate this monster of a shark to be more than 17 feet in length.

Dr. Eric Vetter of Hawaii Pacific Univeristy was on board the submarine and said, "We're pretty much blown away. Usually we're seeing small eels, small crustaceans, shrimp, things called anthropods, but in this case we had what appeared to be a 17 feet to 18 feet, six gill shark and there was a lot of excitement in the submarine."

Vetter has been on many dives in his career and says this is definitely the biggest one he's ever seen, or heard of in Hawaiian waters.

For the complete video clip, and commentary by those on board the submarine click on the Youtube link.

nobody knows, thats the cool part, if it takes a submerine to find it, we are gonna have trouble researching, i think its too deep for anything other than a sub, just like last year when humans found about 11 new speices of animal in a place that could only be gotten to by helicopter so the animals there were completely undisturbed for who knows how long, nothing could get up there.
