save the great white shark

Great white sharks, Carcharodon carcharias, are the largest known predatory fish in the sea. They reach lengths of over 6.1 m and can weigh up to 2,226 kg. They have a conical snout, pitch black eyes, a heavy, torpedo-shaped body, and a crescent-shaped, nearly equal-lobed tail fin that is supported on each side by a keel. The great white swims in a stiff-bodied, tuna-like fashion, unlike the sinuous whole-bodied swimming stroke of most sharks.
