Great white shark. Historical artwork of people looking at a dead great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) on the shore. This marine predator can reach a length of over 7 metres. The other fish are (from left to right): a climbing perch (Anabas testudineus), a gudgeon (Gobio gobio) and two bullheads or sculpins (Cottus gobio). The main prey of the great white shark are large fish, seals and turtles. It lives throughout the warm seas of the world and can reach speeds of 40 km per hour. Like other sharks, it is able to detect tiny traces of blood in the water and follow them to their source.
