About Tagged shark detection shark

Torpedo shape. Pointy snout.

Alternative names: white pointer, great white shark.

White sharks, Carcharodon carcharias, are found near shore along most of the world's temperate coastlines but are relatively scarce compared to most other widely distributed shark species.

In Australia, White Sharks have been recorded from central Queensland, around the southern coast to North West Cape, Western Australia, but are more common in the south.

Only the underbelly is white: the top surface is grey to blue/grey or bronzy. The biggest recorded specimen was 7 metres long and 3200 kg. The teeth are large, saw-edged and triangular. The diet of young specimens (under about 3.5 metres) is mainly a variety of fish, rays and other sharks. Larger adults eat larger prey including marine mammals such as sea lions and seals, small toothed whales and otters. They also eat dead animals floating in the water. More bites on humans, including many fatalities, have been attributed to the great white shark than to any other marine animal. White Sharks are a protected species in all Australian states including NSW, and also in several other countries.

About Tagged shark detection shark

Torpedo shape. Pointy snout.

Alternative names: white pointer, great white shark.

White sharks, Carcharodon carcharias, are found near shore along most of the world's temperate coastlines but are relatively scarce compared to most other widely distributed shark species.

In Australia, White Sharks have been recorded from central Queensland, around the southern coast to North West Cape, Western Australia, but are more common in the south.

Only the underbelly is white: the top surface is grey to blue/grey or bronzy. The biggest recorded specimen was 7 metres long and 3200 kg. The teeth are large, saw-edged and triangular. The diet of young specimens (under about 3.5 metres) is mainly a variety of fish, rays and other sharks. Larger adults eat larger prey including marine mammals such as sea lions and seals, small toothed whales and otters. They also eat dead animals floating in the water. More bites on humans, including many fatalities, have been attributed to the great white shark than to any other marine animal. White Sharks are a protected species in all Australian states including NSW, and also in several other countries.
