Obviously, Jaws made the great white shark even more infamous for its attacks. Many claim the great white is the deadliest in the entire ocean. With a weight of up to five thousand pounds, it’s no wonder its nickname became white death. Over 300 attacks have been recorded. Make sure to cover up those cuts before deep sea diving because this shark can smell blood up to 3 miles away! The danger runs both ways though. Humans hunt them for their liver oil, in addition to skin for leather.
Hold up! We did just name the top three deadliest sharks, but this next one probably killed more humans than those combined! However, since most of these speculated attacks occurred during plane crashes and ship disasters, there is no record. Several sunken WWII ships were believed to be attacked by the oceanic whitetip. Now, that could be a horrifying movie! These terrifying sharks can measure up to 13 feet long. Not only, are they known for being extremely aggressive, but also persistent, which makes for a deadly combo!
