Great White sharks have meetings too!

If you think that socialising is a mans favourite pastime, you need a recheck, for a new study has found that the great white sharks too have animal get togethers.

According to a new study, by Salvador Jorgensen, of Stanford Universitys Hopkins marine station, the renowned solitary predators hold annual meetings, congregating in thousands deep under the sea.

In the winter season, sharks leave seal colonies, where they feed all summer, and set off for warmer waters, reports TimesOnline.

One site between Hawaii and Mexico attracts so many sharks, that it has become known as the white shark cafe.

The research has been released at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
