The Great White Shark is a large mackerel shark that is found in coastal surface waters of all the major oceans. The species is also referred to as the great white, white shark, or white pointer for its notable size. Other distinguishing characteristics include its robust, large, conical snout, rows of serrated teeth behind the main ones, and large eyes with deep blue irises.

Further, it displays countershading by having a white underside and grey dorsal area. The great white shark has no natural predators and it is responsible for more recorded human bite incidents than any other shark.

The typical female Great White Shark has an overall length of 15’-21’ (4.57-6.4 m), with males at lengths of 11’-13’ (3.35-3.96 m). An average Great White Shark weighs between 1500-2400 lb (680-1090 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 30-70 years.
