Caption: Great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) outside a shark cage to protect divers. This is the largest predatory shark. It may reach a length of 7 metres and weigh up to 3.4 tonnes. Its main prey are large fish, seals and turtles. Like other sharks, it is able to detect tiny traces of blood in the water and follow them to their source. It can travel at speeds of up to 40 kilometres an hour. It has a notorious reputation for mistakenly attacking humans. It lives in the warm seas of the world and follows ships into coastal waters. Photographed in the Atlantic Ocean, near Gansbaii, South Africa.
