With gaping jaws that have 300 teeth, the Great White shark is a fierce predator that prefers to attack from the depths. Seals swim very fast, so ambushing from deep water allows the shark to catch their quick prey. The white shark's diet includes squids, fishes, seals, sea lions, dolphins and whales. It rarely attacks people, but movies like Jaws have given them a reputation of being "monsters of the deep". When a white shark does attack a person, it may be a case of mistaken identity - swimmers and surfers look something like sea lions when seen in murky water.
