Great white shark (Animal)


Alright guys, it’s time for a true monster, a monster from the real world. Meet the great white shark!
 - The great white shark, also known as simply great white, is a formidable predator. This monster hunts in all major oceans in the world and can reach up to 6 meters in length. The great white can live to be around 30 years of age, but it only matures when it’s 15.

A lot of people fear the white shark. To them it’s just a killing machine consisting of a huge mouth. But to some degree they’re right. Sharks in general are so good at what they’re doing that they have remained virtually almost unchanged for millions and millions of years. But the great white doesn’t actually have human meat as its favorite food. In reality it’s more into sea lions, seabirds and fish.

But when that has been said it’s important to note that since 1876 65 people have been killed by great whites and 242 have been attacked but survived. A little bonus info is that Australia is the country in the world with most fatal white shark attacks.

People really started to fear this creature when Steven Spielberg made the movie “JAWS.” That movie literally made people afraid of swimming in the ocean! But if people are so afraid of a puny 6 meter shark, they should be thankful that its bigger brother charcarodon megalodon isn’t around anymore, but that one we’ll save for another Monster Madnezz post!!!

  10. Sharks are pretty awesome. Especially if they chew up the concrete like Street Sharks.

    Yeah, I am not afraid of sharks at all. That would be like being afraid of a cow while walking in the pasture.

    Can't wait to hear about the ancestor to a shark. I love megafauna :D

  16. Everything seems to be in Swedish or something similar. At least you typed in English! lol. Anyway, sharks are neat. Megalodons' mouths are completely nuts. I think I read somewhere that they could eat whole buses. T_T

  24. "but it only matures when it’s 15"

    You learn something new everyday. Its also worth noting most attacks are them mistaking you for something tasty.
