Great white shark attack

Updated: Feb 15

When great white sharks are young, they feed on smaller prey, like fish and rays. As they grow larger, they feed more exclusively on marine mammals, such as sea lions, seals and small whales. The great white is at the top of the food chain and has few threats in the ocean. Only orcas and larger sharks can pose a risk.

The great white shark, also known as the great white, white shark or white pointer, is a species of large mackerel shark which can be found in the coastal surface waters of all the major oceans. Wikipedia

They never back down, will often single-handedly take on a pride of lions (see the video footage) and have learned to use tools (it's not an ape)!

It is so fearsome and effective that the South African Defence Force even named the first wheeled infantry fighting vehicle to enter service worldwide after this animal, the 'Ratel'.
