Great Bite

The Great White Shark looks ugly and menacing from any angle, but the person who took this shot probably wasn't thinking the word 'ugly' at that moment - it was more likely an expletive.

These fish can grow to be 20 feet long, and over 5,000 lbs. They cruise cold, open waters, and dine on seals and the occassional human.

Did you know that the Great White is the only apex predator not domesticated or tamed by man? I imagine trying to find something useful for a shark to do, and a tank large enough to accommodate one, might be the main reasons for that, but this mouth might have something to do with it, too.
