Also known as Maneater, Maneater Shark, White Death, White Pointer, White Shark.
Found singly, pairs and occasionally small feeding schools over all areas of the oceans.
They feed in poor light usually early morning and late evening, presumably for surprise attacks. Great Whites detect their prey by the electrical impulses that or given out by their victims.
They feed on sea birds, carrion, crustaceans, large fish, humans, marine mammals, octopus and squid.
Length - 600cm
Depth - 0-1220m
Considered extremely dangerous, probably the most dangerous shark in the world.
They attack in poor light conditions and it is rare they will attack during the day.
When they attack they bite and tear, humans are more hard to digest so often they will take one bite and go!
Great whites when hunting can reach speeds of up to 40k and can launch themselves into the air sometimes as much as 10 meters which they regularly do to catch marine mammals such as sea lions. Ref: https://www.fishbase.se/summary/751
