Great white shark in captivity is back in the wild

The first great white shark to live the longest in captivity was spotted by a gps that was linked to its tag. This shark was released on March 31, 2005 in Monterey Bay. It has been noticed that it is currently making its way down South.

Great white sharks are usually known as not being able to either survive or becoming ill in captivity. One of the reasons is their sensitivity to certain substances present in an aquarium. Eventually, sharks tend to mutilate themselves either accidentally or wilfully. Their senses becoming affected as well as their will to live can create difficult health conditions for them while in captivity.

So far, the great white shark that has been released seemed to adapt easily and enjoy his life in the wild.
