Highly Developed Hunters
With females able to grow up to 7 meters long, the great white shark is the largest predatory fish on earth. It owes its name to its light, almost white, belly color, making it almost invisible to prey looking up from the seafloor. It’s body is similar in construction to a torpedo, making them very good, fast swimmers. In fact, they can reach speeds of up to 25 km/h and, like whales, have the ability to launch their entire body out of the water. Not many species prey on great whites, but if it is attacked, it can rolls its eyes inward for protection. Their eyes can absorb weak light, allowing them to see better in twilight than a cat.
Unfortunately, thanks to Hollywood films and excessive incident reporting, the great white shark does not have the best reputation. Most people don’t know much about these incredible predators. Help dispel the myth by encountering them firsthand. There are only four places in the world where you can go cage diving with great white sharks. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and will allow you to see that there is more than just a “hunter“ in them. Find out exactly where you can dive with these amazing sharks here.
