I have a question for you guys :) I’m interested in your thoughts on the size that Great Whites can reach. Do you think they max out at the size that has actually been documented - around 21ft for the largest ever caught - or are there much larger sharks down there? There have been reports of larger sharks being caught - a Great White was caught in 1997 in Taiwan, that was estimated to have been 23ft, but the exact size was unconfirmed.
Experts believe they max out at around 20ft - the majority being much less than that. The above are considered exceptional and extremely rare, and absolutely the biggest that a Great White would get. What do you think? How big can they get? Do you think the experts are right or are there bigger sharks down there? And how big? 25ft? 26ft? Bigger?!
Looking forward to reading your answers!
