Great white sharks are the largest predatory shark on the Earth, and they have the stats to prove it. Between 1/3 and 1/2 of all shark attacks on humans come from great whites. They grow to an average of 15 feet in length, though specimens can exceed 20 feet and weigh up to 5,000 pounds. Great whites even have organs that can sense the tiny electromagnetic fields generated by animals.
Another interesting fact about great white sharks is that when they compete for food, they often hold tail-slapping contests instead of attacking one another. One great white shark can eat up to 11 tons of food in a year. Great white sharks have livers that weigh up to 24% of their body weight. They are also capable of eating a whole sea lion at once.
Great White Sharks also don’t breed until they are 20 years old! That is very late in life for breeding in the animal world.
They are the only known surviving species of the genus Carcharodon, which includes the prehistoric Megalodon.
This is pretty unique: the teeth of a Great White Shark are serrated like a knife. The serration’s make the tooth sharp enough to saw wood.
