Great White sharks are 12-16 feet long and weigh 7,000 pounds. Females are larger than males. They are blue, white, and gray. Their gray color blends in with the dark water. Great white sharks have 3,000 teeth. As soon as one falls out another one grows in immediately. Great Whites usually live 30-100 years.

Great white sharks are carnivores. They eat fish, rays, other sharks, sea lions, seals and belugas. They can live on a big meal for two months.

Great white’s predators are humans.

Females have one baby at a time. Once they
are born they leave their mother. They are five feet long at birth. Once they are born, they leave their mother.

Great whites live in 54-75 F. They live in
South Africa and the Caribbean.

Great Whites usually swim by themselves but may swim with one other shark.
