Great White Shark

The Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias) is the second most dangerous shark, second only to the Bull Shark. However, it does replace the Bull Shark as the most feared shark. The Great White Shark is the largest carnivorous fish today, (Megalodon was bigger). The shark's main prey includes dolphins, seals, and sea lions. The only enemies Carcharodon carcharias has is man and the Orca. Every year, 1 million sharks are killed just for their fins. The fins are used to make a soup called shark fin soup. In, I think, the 70's, sharks were killed on sight. Now, Great White Sharks are protected by law.
