In this comprehensive guide to the great white shark, you'll learn about when and why sharks attack (and what to do if you find yourself staring a great white in the face). You'll also learn about where these incredible creatures create their habitat, what they like (and don't like) to eat, their mysterious migration patterns, and why scientists have had such a difficult time learning more about the elusive great white. Delve into the biology of exactly what has made it possible for great white sharks to remain top predators for over 400 million years (that's right – they've been around since before dinosaur times). From their mind-blowing sense of smell to their ability to sense electromagnetic fields, great white sharks seem like a work of science fiction, but they couldn't be any more real.
