A Great White Shark swims through surface waters in the waters off South Australia. The largest predatory fish fish in the sea, the great white remains somewhat enigmatic, with much of its life and behaviors unknown. In the past, researchers believed that white sharks lived to an age of about 35 years, but more recently scientists published findings suggesting that they live into their 70s. Imagine how much wisdom about the sea that an animal which travels thousands of miles each year and lives 70 years must possess.
