Moore captured more photos of the magnificent sea creature and posted them to his collection of other shark photos on his Instagram page.

He was free-diving when he came across the giant shark and said he has had plenty of encounters with big sharks, however, this one was by far the biggest shark he had ever seen.

Photos show the pregnant female shark searching for a meal close to the surface of the ocean while swimming along with other bull sharks.

“She was an abnormally large female,” the photographer wrote on Instagram. “Very likely pregnant, she certainly hadn’t skipped any meals. She was a very dominant shark, confidently coming right up to me throughout our dive.”

“Up close and personal inspection of the very impressive serrated teeth,” he wrote. “A fish had grabbed the chunk of bait and run toward me for cover, before getting scared and dropping the chunk. This set me up for a shot that’s even too close for my 20mm lens.”

Moore even shares video footage of the encounters he has with sharks in the ocean. You can view those videos on his Instagram.
