Great white sharks, the world's number one predator according to Animal Planet, are spotted off of Cape Cod every so often, as one was this past Saturday. It's less common, however, to hear about one off a Maine beach, but that doesn't mean this razor-tooth beast isn't out there. According to shark experts, Maine fisherman, and charter boat captains, there are undoubtedly great whites in the Gulf of Maine and some have seen them as recently as last summer. Many had thought the waters were too cold but these predators will follow seals, their favorite food, into water as cold as fifty degrees.
