wow he looks big. did he get measured? i was bitten (as a kid) by a thirteen incher who was ashore to lay eggs (i presume, as it was a female) it tore some of my (admittedly cheap and crappily made) sneaker open and barely broke the skin. the impressive thing was that it tore through my thick "fishing" socks. they are hard to cut with even a dull knife. were you hurt? how did it happen. is it your pet?
