Critter of the Week: The Great White Shark

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:25 pm on 23 June 2017

The White Pointer shark is the only marine fish in the Threatened Species Strategy.  They have 24 lower teeth and 26 upper teeth.

But we know very little about their lives and behaviour because they are hard to study.  That’s because there are not many of them, they move around a lot and they are fish, so they don’t need to surface to breathe.

DoC's Threatened Species Ambassador, Nicola Toki shares what we do know about these apex predators
