Great White Sharks Dive Deep and Migrate Far

"I was shocked by the results," noted University of California at Santa Cruz biologist Burney Le Boeuf, a co-author of a recent study done on great white sharks. "Going into this, what we expected was that white sharks were just coastal animals that breed in Southern California, then migrate a few hundred miles north to feed on seals. But it turns out they've got a life at sea, and when they're in the open ocean, they're diving very deep at times."
