Overview

The Great White Shark is an animal that inspires awe and fear: it is one of the world’s foremost predators, equipped with the most formidable jaws in the animal kingdom.

South Africa's Great White Shark is the definitive text for cage divers, marine biologists, tour guides, and photographers, providing in-depth coverage of Great White behavior, ecology, conservation, ecotourism and the truth behind cage diving, chumming and shark 'attacks'.
