  Physical Description

The Great White Shark has tons of
interesting stuff like; they have a HUGE
snout that can sniff blood from 2 miles away!
It also has sharp teeth that bite into the
Seal or Fish its eating. This one is one that I
didn’t even know about! They have a black
tipped fin! They have a blacked tipped fin so
they can balance when their swimming in the
water. If they only had one fin and it was on
the right when they swam they would have
leaned on the right side only. They also have
a dark grey back. They have a dark grey back
so they can blend in. They also have a white
belly. Some Great White Sharks weigh about
1,000 1b.                          But most
weigh about                        2 tons!
That’s like                        about 25 or
30 of your                         dad!

            Life Cycle

This fact is a little crazy. Did you know that
the mother hatches the egg in her body then
gives birth to a live baby. Now the life span
is unknown. Scientist guesses their life span
is about 10 or 11
or 12 years! When
the shark is about
3 or 5 years old
the mother sends
the shark on its
own. When a shark
dies the shark actually floats to the bottom
not the top. So even when its dead no animal
can eat the Great White Shark because he
or she floats to the bottom.

               Habitat

The Great White Shark has 3 seasons,
summer, winter, and spring. It’s kind of
ecosystem is wet and humid. The Great
White Shark lives in a lot of places. It lives
in the Coral Reef, in the middle of the ocean
                   and lots of other places. It
                   doesn’t mind if it has other
                   animals in its ecosystem. It
                   only matters if the animal
                   tries to bother the Great
White Shark. For example if another Great
White Shark smells food or finds food the
other Great White Shark finds it to so then
they get into a fight. The winner is always
the bigger one. So if a little one made a fight
it’s a risk for them but it’s not a risk for the
big one because they know that he or she’s
going to win.

             Diet Food

The Great White Shark eats tons of stuff
like, fish, squid, seals, sea lions, whales.
What’s really cool is that nothing eats the
Great White Shark. The Great White Shark
Eats in the middle of the day and night. It
eats by smelling blood and other animals they
can eat from a mile away. It finds it then he
or she sees it then it takes it in its mouth
then chews it up like giving a kid 3 cakes and
Dukin donughts. The Great White Shark
