Animal of the day – 8/11/2010 – The Great White Shark

The Great White Shark

The animal of the day is the Great White Shark. (Did you know: These have been hunting in our oceans since the time of the dinosaurs! White sharks attack dolphins and porpoises from above, behind or below to avoid being detected by their echolocation. The great white is the apex [top] predator in the ocean, EXCEPT for Killer Whales which are known to attack and eat them rarely. Guess you shouldn’t have been hunting their little brother and sister dolphins! Shark Week is awesome!)

  1. kelly swam with the great whites with the ‘Sharkman’ in SA. We were watching shark week and that dude came on and she was like “yeah, that’s they guy”. kel kept sticking her head above the cage and he kept telling her “they’re gonna take your head off!!!” (good thing they didn’t)
