Great White Shark (Real Monster)

Alright guys, I've been busy today, so I'll leave you with a repost I did long ago!
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!!!

  8. I've run into a lot of sharks in my time but (LUCKILY) never had the misfortune of meeting one of these guys face to face. Don't think I'd ever want to, for that matter either.

  9. I went shark fishing with my uncle and his friends when I was younger, they caught a small shark (I forget what kind) but he thought it was dead and was showing me it's teeth and that thing bit his fucking finger off!

    Ever since I've been terrified of sharks.
