Is there a way to tell the difference between a male and female great white?

    From the right angle, the easiest way to determine the sex of a great white shark is to see whether it has “claspers”.  Claspers are a shark’s penises, and every male has two of them, located in between the pelvic fins on the shark’s underside.  Failing this, however, the only distinguishing feature is that females tend to bigger than males, both in length and girth.  Generally, great whites are between twelve and sixteen feet long, so if your looking at a shark on the larger end of this scale, it’s likely to be a female.
