Great white shark – Carcharodon carcharias Linnaeus

Sharks (Selachii) are fish with a cartilaginous skeleton, gill slits, and triangular teeth arranged in several rows. They emerged about 400 million years ago and are among the oldest extant vertebrates. They are carnivores and good swimmers, and can measure over 5 metres in length.
