[animalOfTheDay] – The Great White

The great white shark has the sharpest bite of all predators. It can maintain its temperature at 25 degrees regardless of the water temperature and thus can swim to up to 40km/hr. As all sharks they attack from underneath the prey; it only attacks surfers because they look like seals from deep below, but leaves them wounded (and hence they bleed to death) once it realises its mistake. It is a macro-predator, meaning it eats anything smaller and up to its own size, in this particular case up to 4 meters.
