White sharks are warm blooded. They have a heat-exchanging circulatory system that allows them to maintain their body temperature above that of the surrounding seawater. This allows them to swim at high speeds through cooler water.
White sharks are found in cooler temperate waters worldwide. They have a varied diet of generally large prey, including fish, marine mammals, seabirds and turtles. They may grow up to seven metres in length and are totally protected by law from fishing.
