The Great White Shark
The great white shark is commonly found in waters near the United States, South Africa, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, and the Mediterranean. They live off the coasts of all continents except for Antarctica. The great white shark isn’t really all white - the back of the shark can be grey or even blue!
Great white sharks can get very big! An adult shark can be up to 20 feet long and over 7000 pounds! This makes them dangerous predators with their size being intimidating as well as their teeth. A great white’s teeth are very sharp, and if one falls out it’s no problem! They have rows and rows of back-up teeth. They can lose over one thousand teeth in their lifetime (which is about 25 years)!
