A TERRIFYING Great White Shark has been pictured off the coast of Spain.
The 16.5ft beast was photographed by scientists near the island of Cabrera, just off the southern coast of Mallorca.
Ricardo Sagarminaga van Buiten led the Alnitak expedition.
The biologist shared the shot on the Alnitak Facebook page, saying the group had followed and observed the shark for just over an hour.
Van Buiten believes it is the first scientific evidence of a Great White in Spanish waters for more than 30 years.
The team said: “In recent years there were possible unconfirmed sightings and various rumours, but this is the first scientific observation of the presence of the white shark in Spanish waters for at least 30 years.
“On this occasion, this historic sighting has been photographed, filmed and contemplated by a crew of 10 people from five countries.”
