Great white sharks are plentiful near the Farallon islands outside of California. Their bodies are designed to successfully catch their prey, the northern elephant seals. Sharks lie in wait for seals to come into the water, and then with two thrusts of their powerful tail they reach speeds of up to twenty-five miles per hour and snatch their prey. Scientists study these sharks to learn more about their feeding habits and their unique physical traits.
