Great White Sharks are the largest predatory fish on our planet! They can be found in oceans around the world where they spend their time primarily near cool-water coasts.
Unfortunately, these magnificent animals have been given the reputation as man-eaters from the media over many years, when in reality Great Whites are highly sophisticated hunters who don’t enjoy eating humans. The great majority of shark attacks by Great Whites are simply a case of mistaken identity for their favorite meal: seals and sea lions.
Unfortunately, even the ocean’s top predator is no match for mankind’s impact on the sea. Overfishing has driven these incredible and ancient animals to become an Endangered species.
