Great Whites

Hello everyone today I’m going to be talking about one of the largest predatory fish in the sea The Great White Shark. Great whites are not all white, their backs may be dark blue, gray, brown or black. These sharks may use and lose more than ONE THOUSAND teeth in its life time! These fish live for about 25 years, and they breed late in life. They don’t start to breed until they’re at least TWENTY YEARS old! Great Whites can consume about 11 tons of food and can eat a sea lion whole. Great White Sharks try to avoid fighting for food. When there is only enough food for one shark, they have a TAIL-SLAPPING contest! The sharks swim past each other, slapping the water surface with their tails, and often splashing the water toward the other shark. The one who gets the meal is the shark that delivers the most tail slaps.
