https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angelshark

Angel sharks are large, flat-bodied, bottom-dwelling species. As ambush predators, they lie in wait for unsuspecting prey (particularly flatfish) to swim past.

There are at least 22 species of angel shark making up the family Squatinidae–which is the third most threatened family of elasmobranchs after saw-fishes.

The habitat preference of angel sharks leaves them particularly vulnerable to fishing and habitat degradation.

As a result, many species have suffered steep population declines and now face a high risk of extinction.

Something now listed half of these species as a threat.

Here is the Mexican angel shark.

The Great White Shark is a species of large Mackerel sharks that can be found in coastal surface waters of all the major oceans.

Females are larger than males.

They can grow to 20 ft long and weigh over 5000 pounds.

Like all creature’s size can vary as weight.

I invite you to research more about them.

We have to take care of them.

They are important to keep a balance in the food chain and keep our oceans clean.

The man keeps hunting them and this is horrible and is getting worse.

We need to keep telling the government to have stronger regulations and have these worldwide.

 

Great White has no natural predators except for men. Now we know that Orca killer whales and even other dolphins kill them for defense or fight for food or protecting their young.

Other than that, they are very independent. We need to remember that they are animals, not assassins.

Movies like Jaws and other movies portrait them in a matter that people see them as monsters. They do not even like human flesh.

Most of the attacks are curiosity, and only one bite is enough to kill any human. Especially bleeding.

We are familiar that the coast of California, South Africa, and Australia is where more you see them.

GREAT WHITE SHARK

Chasing for food like sea lions among others. Their attack is legendary. If you go to YouTube and other channels like National Geographic and Discover is where more we can learn and see spectacular footage.

There is plenty of information there, but my intention is to create more awareness, anything I can do.

Australia and few countries have laws to protect, but we know criminals do not care. But if all the planet gets together, something can be done.

Not only Great white any animal oceanic or not. We need to protect the home God gave us. We need to protect The Great White Shark.
