Did you know?

The Great white shark

This fear-inducing fish, the eternal poster shark for the "Jaws" fuelled anti-shark sentiment, the powerful Great white, also known as the 'White shark' is the ocean's top predator.

The White shark is also the largest of predatory fish, growing to lengths of over 6 meters (20 feet).

This shark is found in every ocean on the planet, and can adapt to sub-tropical and temperate waters alike. These sharks are the most feared of all shark species, and their jagged, exposed, multiple rows of teeth are certainly their most threatening feature.

Great whites have about 300 teeth at any given time, while back rows continually develop new teeth to replace ones lost over time.  These sharks predate huge mammals such as seals, and they need strong jaws and sharp teeth to consume such large prey! 

Despite the widely held belief White sharks are 'man-eating machines' and 'monsters of the sea', they are actually vulnerable, ancient, vital marine creatures, and deserve the respect of man.
