White Shark Safaris

Did you know?

Great White sharks, aside from being an efficient predator, are also one of the more interesting shark species. Sharks have been roaming the seas for 400 million years, approximately 200 million years before dinosaurs, though great white sharks appeared in their current form around eleven million years ago. 

Did you know? 

Various cultures have worshipped sharks as gods for centuries.  Pearl divers in the western Pacific sought the blessings of a shark charmer prior to entering the water and tattooed themselves all over in order to pacify the shark gods.

Their Latin name, carcharadon carcharias translates to “ragged tooth”.  Great Whites have large, triangular, serrated teeth in their upper jaw to saw through the flesh and bones of their mammalian prey, but have slightly longer, more pointed teeth in the lower jaw to hold the prey steady (similar to how we use a knife and fork).  They have rows of teeth that are folded down against the gums, and move into place, like a conveyor belt, to replace lost or broken teeth.

They are not nearly as dangerous as commonly believed.  Peter Benchley, who wrote “Jaws”, once said:  “If I had known then what I know now, I could never have written that book.  The monster I created is pure fiction”.
