White sharks are predatory animals that begin life by feeding on fish, rays, and other sharks, and as they grow, switch to feeding on marine mammals and scavenging on large animal carcasses. Juveniles remain in the shallow habitats for up to 3 years, which may make them vulnerable to trawl capture in New Zealand (Francis 1997). The beauty and artistry of an outstanding taxidermy trophy is our passion.
