Predators of the Ocean
A great white shark is born five feet tall. That is about the size of the average woman. An adult can weigh about 4,500 pounds.
A great white shark tooth is about 2.5 inches. That’s about the size of a pinkie finger! Sharks have several sets of teeth. So if they loose one then one just grows right back in it’s place.
Great white sharks can swim 43 miles an hour if they are going fast. If one is going slow then a human could swim right by it!
