DESCRIPTION

 

The great white shark scientifically named the Carcharodon carcharias is known as the most viscous and dangerous fish out there.The great white shark adult size is and average of 4 to 5.2 meters  long and a mass of 1500 to 2400 lbs.This shark is able to prey on large enemies with it's big sharp and serrated teeth that have a length of 4cm and have a width of 3cm.The great white has a conical snout and pitch black eyes, his body is in a shape of a tornado and nearly equal sized fins on each side. The great white swims in a stiff-body, like a tuna, unlike the whole-body swimming stroke of most sharks.

 

 

PREY ADAPTATION'S

 

The great shark has only two predators the an orca (killer whale) and the humain. The orca kills the great white by flipping them on there backs and the shark go's on a trance and drowns and the killer whale eats it's liver. The other predator is the humain of course. The humain uses the great white shark for their teeth to sell or for museum and for shark fin soup.

 

 

PREDATOR ADAPTATION'S

 

The great white shark are carnivorous and they are on the top of the marine food chain they will prey on tuna, manta rays,other sharks, cetaceans, dolphins, porpoises, whales, pinnipeds, seals, fur seals, sea lions, sea turtles, fish, sea otters and sea birds.This sharks prefer food with a higher energenique fat content.

 

HABITAT

 

The great white sharks live in almost all coastal and offshore waters that there water temperature is 12 and 24 celsius but most sharks are found in the States in Atlantic Northeast and California, also in South Africa, Japan, Oceania, Chile and the mediterranean sea. One of the most dense population for the great whites are found around Dyer Island South Africa, were almost all the research of the shark is done.

 

SYMBIOSIS

 

The great white shark has a symbiotic relationship with the remora fish. The remora fish gets to eat its deadly bacteria on their skin, but it doesn't only give the remora fish an advantage but also helps the shark from getting sick and the remora fish gets a free ride. This is a mutualism relationship.
