Description: Great White Shark/Carcharodon carcharias

Surface Hunter Great White Shark

A great white shark crosses the water close to Geyser Rock and Dyer Island in front of the South African coast. African penguins, cormorants (or sea ravens), many other sea birds and a large colony of South African fur seals (Arctocephalus pusillus) live here. The surface hunter often finds his prey on the water surface. The super-robber great white shark with its size and strength and fearsome jaws is a permanent danger to the South African fur seals around Dyer Island and Geyser Rock. The great white shark belongs to the family of mako sharks and has very large gill slits and long pectoral fins. The largest great white shark ever caught had a length of 6.4 meters and an estimated weight of 1500 kg.
