The Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias) is an adoptable animal in Zoo Tycoon 2: Marine Mania. It is the second largest Shark in the game after the Whale shark and has a voracious appetite. The great white shark is vulnerable, meaning it's likely to be endangered due to overfishing. Fisherman kill millions of sharks every year as trophy, while sharks kill around eight people a year.The diet of a great white shark mainly consists of large fish and seals. Contrary to popular belief, sharks are not "man-eaters", and greatly dislike the taste of humans. There are very rare if no documented cases of a shark actually eating an entire person.
Attempts to keep white pointers in captivity usually result in the shark's death within about ten days, however, Monteray Bay Aqarium keeps white sharks in captivity periodically for a few years and the San Sebastian Aquarium keeps them during all their life . This is because great whites require massive amounts of space and need to be fed regularly. Little is known about white shark behavior, and even though they are so famous, there is still much we do not know about these giant fish.
The White Shark originally made its appearance in Zoo Tycoon: Marine Mania as the White Shark but its name was changed in the sequel for unknown reasons. For some reason in the original Marine Mania, it can perform in shows. It can only be unlocked in Research and Conversation.
