My 6 year old nephew, Alec, left me a message a couple of weeks ago. He had just watched a shark week episode with the amazing Chris Fallows. He could not wait to tell me that he had found the biggest shark in the ocean* that I could swim with…Colossus!
I was thrilled to hear my nephew’s excitement talking about this shark. Colossus is a great white shark from South Africa. Off the coast of Cape Cod, we have Curly and Large Marge! We will be posting information about our local sharks over the coming weeks.
Atlantic White Shark Conservancy encourages you to get your kids excited and talking about sharks!
*Note- The great white shark is not the largest shark in the ocean. Do you know what is?
