Great White sharks

Great white sharks are the largest predatory shark they can reach an average length of around 20ft and a weight of 1,500 to 2,450 lb. They mainly eat seals but sometimes do attack on humans but your more likely to get hit by a falling coconut than get attacked by a shark. In the case of being attacked by a great white shark it's about mistaken identity. If your a surfer and swimming out to the waves from underneath you look like a seal to the shark so then it come up from underneath it a natural attack. When a shark attacks it comes out of the water in a breach. When a shark comes out of the water it protects its eyes with a nontransparent lens. These animals are rarely mistaken there gray color on there top, pure white underneath, and 20ft long they are mere impossible to mistake for another shark. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_white_shark here is everything else about Great White Sharks.
