Great white sharks are probably one of the most feared animals in the sea, especially by humans. But these fearsome predators, featured in the classic movie, “Jaws,” are in some serious trouble according to some local conservation groups. After conducting a series of scientific studies, the conservation groups determined that only about 350 great whites now exist off the California and Baja Mexico coasts.
In what could be the world’s largest assembly of whale sharks 420 of these marine animals were spotted off the coast of Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico.
According to press release issued by the Smithsonian National Zoological Park this spotting of whale sharks in such a huge number contradicts the popular belief that the species are solitary creatures and prefer to navigate the ocean waters alone
