Mauricio Hoyos Padilla, a local researcher in Mexico’s Guadalupe Island, posted the footage on Facebook on Tuesday and the video racked up over 3.6 million views in just two days. The same shark was reportedly featured on a Discovery network TV program that involved the “tagging” of Deep Blue.

The shark is believed to be roughly 50 years old, over 20-feet long and, as GrindTV puts it, has the “girth of a fat hippo.”

Check out the footage below:
