The great whiteshark is a streamlined swimmer and a ferocious predator with 3,000 teeth at any given time. This much-feared fish has a torpedo-shaped body, a pointed snout, is crescent-shaped, has 5 gill slits, no fin spines, an anal fin and 3 main fins, the dorsal fin (on its back) and 2 pectoral fins (on its sides). When the shark is near the surface, the dorsal fin and part of its tail is visible above the water.
Adult great white sharks usually feed on sea lions, seals, beluga whales, otters, sea turtles, dead animals, and other weaker sharks. Baby sharks eat smaller and weaker animals that include fish, rays, and other dead sharks.
Great white sharks live along the coastlines of
continents and countries of temperate waters
or warm waters.
Scientists are always eager to find out more about Great White Sharks. One way they study them is by actually looking at them. Now, they don’t just look at them, they actually use waterproof cages. Scientists don’t do what this man back here is doing. Another important note, sharks don’t bite humans because they are hungry, they only bite if they are frustrated, alarmed, or they just mistake us for food. Only an average of 10 people get injured by shark attacks a year. The chances of you getting killed because of a shark attack are 1 in 3,000,000.
