This deep-sea predator, which can grow to be twenty-seven feet long and weigh over two tons, loves to eat fish, seals, octopus, and sea turtles. Female great white sharks are generally larger than the males. As the biggest hunting sharks, they are also among the fastest fish in the sea, reaching speed of twenty miles per hour with their perfectly streamlined body. When catching prey, these sharks are precise and grab their meal with fifty triangle-shaped teeth. In a single bite, these sharks can swallow thirty one pounds of food. After dull, old teeth, razor-sharp teeth come in as replacements. Sometimes solitary, great white sharks have been known to travel over forty miles in one day and live to be over forty years old.
