Great White Shark:
The great white shark is one of the most recognizable sharks in existence. The great predator of the deep ranges in size from 11 to 17 feet and weighs from 1,500 to 2,430 pounds as an adult, with one of the largest measuring up to 21 feet in length and weighing 7,328 pounds. Great white sharks prefer coastal and offshore waters which have water temperatures between 54 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
Great Hammerhead Shark:
The magnificent great hammerhead shark is the largest species of hammerhead, growing up to 20 feet in length. On average they are around 11 feet long and weigh 500 pounds. They can be distinguished from other shark species by the shape of their head and the tall, curved first dorsal fin.
This solitary shark ranges in size from 10 to 14 feet and weighs from 849 to 1,400 pounds as an adult, but large specimens have been known to grow up to 25 feet in length and weighing up to 1,900 pounds. Tiger sharks enjoy warm waters and can easily be spotted near the surface in tropical and sub-tropical areas of the world such as Hawaii. Though this predator of the deep is at the top of the food chain, it is considered a near-threatened species due to finning and fishing by humans.
