The population of the Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias) has declined drastically worldwide. In September 2002, it finally was protected as a species threatened by extinction. The future will show, if this measure was taken too late. (00010285)

A sensitive creature: Young Great White Shark



Six sea miles from the coast of Gansbaai, quite close to Dyer Island and Gyser Rock, a young Great White Shark is seen moving close to the water surface. Great White Sharks are fully developed after birth –at this point in time they are 1.10 to 1.60 meters long – and can take care of themselves from the start. Their nourishment consists of smaller fish and squids. Pups are very careful and vanish off the scene as soon as they see a full-grown shark. Only very few pups reach adulthood.
