American Greg Vella (Greg Vella) has been living in the Japanese city of Osaka. He enjoys fishing, which helped him to witness the rare event. 18 APR Greg, catching tuna, heard on the radio that the coast floats a great white shark with a turtle in his mouth. It sounded very strange, and neither the fisherman nor his companions didn’t believe what was said. However, examining their traps with bait for the next day, people found that shark – it was tangled in the nets and was dead.
Like most other sharks, the white (lat. Carcharodon carcharias) are opportunistic predators (i.e. use any meat that will be able to produce), but mostly feed on small animals, including turtles. White sharks have three rows of teeth. Their jagged edges, making shark’s teeth are not only able to tear off chunks of flesh, but to cut it like a saw that allows you to crush a tortoise shell. However, in this case, something went wrong: reptile stuck in his mouth, and predatory fish choked on his prey, failed to see through.
The white shark is one of the largest fish on Earth. The size in average is 4.8 meters, weight – 1100 kg. Individual, trying to eat a tortoise, belonged to the record: according to the Greg, she was five meters long and weighed about two tons. However, it is not the biggest of sharks, giants: living in waters of Mexico the six-metre shark, nicknamed Deep Blue weighs 2.5 tons.
