Great White Sharks
By Brandi Waters
  

1     Have you ever seen the movie Jaws? It is a movie about a great white shark. In the movie, the shark likes to attack people. It can be scary. In real life, great white sharks can be very scary. They are big. They are the largest meat-eating fish in the world. Great white sharks can grow up to twenty feet long. They can weigh as much as five thousand pounds. That's almost as big as a bus!
 
2     Great white sharks do not have much to fear. Instead, they are one of the ocean's greatest predators. They have more than three thousand sharp teeth in their mouths. They eat seals, sea lions, fish, sea turtles, and even whales. Humans are not a normal part of their diet. Great white sharks sometimes do attack humans swimming in the water. The sharks do not usually kill, though. Scientists think that the sharks bite people because they are curious, not because they are hungry.
