Re: Great White spotted near Key West

The number of Great Whites off the coast of SA is incredible. There is one island that is home to thousands of seals and it attracts hundreds of GWs. Remarkably it is less than half a mile off a major beach and there has never been a shark attack. Maybe they don't like the taste and prefer seal.
