Caption: Great white shark. The great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) is the largest and most feared predator in the sea. It may reach a length of over 7 metres, and eats anything. Its main prey are large fish, seals and turtles. It has a notorious reputation as an attacker of humans, and many deaths have been attributed to it. It lives throughout the warm seas of the world, and often follows ships into coastal waters. It can reach speeds of 40 kilometres per hour. Like other sharks, it is able to detect tiny traces of blood in the water and follow them to their source. Photographed off South Africa.
