Great white shark dubbed ‘Big Girl’ flashes huge jaws in thrilling close-up footage

Watch as a great white shark dubbed “Big Girl” flashes her huge jaws in thrilling footage.

Hawaii native Mike Coots captured the incredible close-up video while swimming in the ocean.

When he was just 18 years old, Mr Coots was attacked by a tiger shark while surfing.

Despite the incident, the conservationist and photographer says he has no fear or anger towards sharks, “just a healthy respect”.
