Shark Facts:

  • Great white sharks have large eyes proportional to their body, and while their irises may appear black they are actually a deep blue.
  • Fossil records indicate that great white sharks have been around for at least 16 million years.
  • A study from 2014 estimated the lifespan of great white sharks to be 70 years or more, much higher than all previous estimates.
  • After a big meal, great white sharks can fast for up to three months.
  • Great white sharks eat about 11 tons of food per year. In comparison, the average human eats about half a ton of food per year.
  • Great white sharks generally attack seals from below, but their technique changes slightly depending on the size and species of the seal.
