Great White Shark

Over 20 feet long, and 4,000 pounds heavy, the great white shark is the biggest predatory fish in the sea.  It uses size, strength and speed to catch prey.  But it kills with only one primary weapon: its jaws.  Three hundred razor sharp teeth slice off 20 pounds of flesh in one bite.
