Great white shark

In inquiry I learn about amazing different sea animals and I chose the Great white shark to research on, I chose this because I like sharks and they are very interesting to learn about.

Great white sharks are the world's largest living hunting fish. Mature sharks grow up to 6.4 metres  in length and they weigh 3,324 kilograms. There are also Great White Sharks measuring over 8 metres. This shark can have babies around 15 years of age.

Great white sharks attack their prey with a mouthful of razor sharp, serrated triangular teeth. There are two elements that make the mouth so effective: the teeth and the jaws. Shark teeth are something like the teeth of land predators,they have very sharp points that will cut into meat.
