9- The Cuban Great White – El Monstruo.jpg

In 1945, an enormous white shark was caught off Cojimar, a fishing village east of Havana, Cuba. When measured, the shark was found to be in excess of 21 feet and weighed over 7,000 pounds, which would make it the largest great white shark on record, according to Discovery. It was later proven that the shark was actually 16 feet long. The weight could have been exaggerated, with experts saying it probably didn’t way more than 4,200 pounds, but they could not confirm. Either way, El Monstruo is a monstrous shark.
