Watch: Great white shark looks huge until second shark appears

Video footage showing a large great white shark dwarfed by an enormous white shark has produced some classic, albeit predictable, responses.

The accompanying footage, tweeted Saturday by The Depths Below, is intended to show the “size difference between a 3m (10-foot) great white and a 5m (16-foot) great white.”

Both sharks were attracted to bait during an unidentified cage-diving operation and the footage, with no credit given, has garnered more than 1 million views.

Predictably, one of the comments is a GIF showing Capt. Quint (Robert Shaw) from “Jaws,” behind a fishing rod.

Another shows Police Chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) in the boat cabin with Quint, nervously smoking a cigarette as the GIF text reads, “We’re gonna need a bigger boat.”

There was a famous Quint quote from the same 1975 thriller: “Y’know the thing about a shark, he’s got… lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll’s eyes….”

One commenter proclaimed to be “done with the ocean. Forever.”

A more sensible observation: “The big one uses its tail to give a little warning to the teenager.”

Perhaps not surprisingly, dozens of viewers did not seem impressed and commented, dryly, that the difference between 3 meters and 5 meters is, of course, 2 meters.
