How many Teeth does a Great White Shark have?

1 min read

The teeth of the great white are large, serrated and triangle-shaped. Unlike the lower jaw’s teeth, the teeth on the upper jaw are thicker. The great white possesses 300 teeth that are divided into seven rows. The juvenile individuals of the great white (measuring not more than 5.5 feet in length) have tiny cusplets on both sides of the main teeth blade. These cusplets are used in catching fishes that dwell on the sea floor.
