My  favourite sharks

 

There are 370 species of sharks. My favourite shark is the great white shark. People call it white death.

The white shark is very dangerous. It eats seals but it often attacks people. It can't see very well and mistakes people for seals. The white shark's skin is sharper than a file. When the shark's tooth brokes it changes to new one. The shark changes thousand teeth during its life. The biggest...

Great White Shark

Posted by: Reneta Raicheva

Habitat


Temperate oceans of the world.

 

Description


The great white shark has a conical rather than a flattened snout, black eyes, and large, serrated, arrow-shaped teeth. The upper and lower lobes of the tail are almost equal in size, and the body is blue- or brown-grey, not white, except on the underside. They eat seals, fish, other sharks, carrion, and just about anything else it can manage to swallow.
