Monster 20ft great white shark that savaged man's legs may be biggest in the world
great white shark which attacked a man – leaving him needing nearly 30 pints of blood transfusions – is now thought to be one of the world's biggest sea beasts.Steve Bruemmer, 62, lost several litres of blood and had to have a transfusion of nearly 30 pints after he was targeted by the beast at Lovers Point Beach, in Monterey Bay, California.He was enjoying a swim when the sea monster dragged him underwater before witnesses saw him resurface and shout for help on June 22.READ MORE Screaming surfer begs for help as legs and arms shredded by great white sharkThe retired IT specialist was "lucky to be alive" after three surfers rushed to his rescue and took him back to shore with their paddle boards.Having had his bites checked out by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, it now appears that the shark could have been up to 20 feet long – which is about as large as they can get.Officially, a great white shark called Deep Blue measures around that length and weights 5,500lbs and is thought to be more than 50 years old.Although difficult to prove, if the one Steve came into contact with is the same length, or even longer, it will be the biggest great white shark ever spotted.Despite the size of the beast and the damage it did, Steve believes he was fortunate that the shark attacked him in a spot "that seemed survivable”.He said: “The shark bite was unlucky, but after that, I’ve just had so much good luck.“The day was so calm and warm and the beach was crowded. There were no waves and there was no chop.“So people could hear me yelling ‘help’ from a great distance, including from the Rec Trail, where someone called 911.”“I remember I was lying in the ambulance and I thought, ‘my lungs are good.

Monster 16ft shark filmed circling boat as it tries to steal catch from fishermen
shark circles around the fishermen's small boat before sinking teeth onto their catch.An amateur fisherman, from Spain, and his friend has had a close encounter with the five-metre-long (16ft) apex predator just off the coast of Mallorca in June last year.In the recently resurfaced video, he places their catch of the day — a 5.2ft long tuna — over the side the small boat and leaves it dipping in the water.While they are chatting, a dark shadow is seen lurking around the boat until it emerges from the water and takes a chunk off the tuna.The grey shark wrangles the fish's head a few times and disappears in the water.The duo wait patiently and gently shakes the tuna to see if the shark would return."It's coming from below, what a beast," one man said while another one shouts: "He's eating half of it!"The hungry shark drags the fish to the back of the boat and thrashes in the water as it takes on another few bites.For the latest breaking news and stories from across the globe from the Daily Star, sign up for our newsletter by clicking here.The video was being widely shared by newspaper Ultima Hora and being spread across WhatsApp as people hit the beaches.It is thought that the shark sighting was at the island of Cabrera.Meanwhile in Cape Cod Bay, Massachusetts, a family of five was terrified when they saw a shark swimming along their boat during their lobster-hunting trip.The jaw-dropping footage, which shows the shark just below the water’s surface, was shared on the Facebook page Billingate Charters, where the family were heard yelling: "Holy smokes, that thing is huge, dude! "That’s like 15 feet! That thing is enormous."David Stamatis, owner of the boating company, said: "They were thrilled, it made their trip.
