Found in the tropical and temperate waters of all major oceans, the great white shark is one of the most iconic predators. They are exceptionally large, and on occasion can grow to be over 20 feet long and weigh over 4,000 pounds.
Sadly, great white sharks are classified as vulnerable by the IUCN. Rough estimates place their population at about 3,500-4,000 individuals, although there is a lack of concrete data in relation to these numbers. Great white numbers are dropping not only because of habitat degradation and a loss of suitable prey, but also because they are targeted by fishermen for their jaws, teeth, and fins.
