4. Hunting tactics depend on the type of prey. Seal Island has white sharks attacking Cape fur seals from below at high speed, grabbing them across the body. The attack takes place so rapidly that sharks can almost completely jump out of the water. It is recognized in the scientific community that the maximum speed during such an attack reaches 40 km / h.

6. To date, the largest reliably measured shark is recognized as the female, caught in 1988 in the waters of Prince Edward Island. The length of this fish was 6.1 m, and the weight was about 1900 kg.
