How often do great white sharks need to eat?



  1. 0 Votes

    Great white sharks usually feed on sea otters, sea turtles, mollusks, crustaceans, sea birds, seals, and sea lions. They will consume an animal based on it’s fat/energy content. If the animal does not have enough fat or calories to satiate the white shark, it will release the animal. However, if a white shark is able to find a prey that suits its’ fat/caloric need, it can go without feeding for approximately 2 months.

    Great White Sharks are the largest predatory fish. They feed on sea lions, seals, some whales, and sea turtles. These sharks usually attack from below, rip apart their prey with their powerful jaws, and then swallow the chunks of meat whole. Great Whites eat an average of 11 tons of food per year, though they don’t need to eat every day. After eating a sea lion, they can go one or two months without eating. After eating a bigger meal, they can last three months.
