Five big sharks that help keep our oceans healthy

You’re probably familiar with the great white shark, but how much do you know about these other big sharks: blacktip, tiger, sand tiger, galapagos, and whale? Those are just five of roughly 500 shark species found in our oceans. And they’re doing their part to keep the oceans healthy by keeping fish populations in check.

This Nat Geo WILD video about 5 Big Sharks That Rule the Sea is super informative with lots of excellent footage.

Watch these shark videos next: The REMUS SharkCam, Hammerhead Shark Swarm, Thresher Shark’s Deadly Tail, and The Basking Shark: A gentle giant with a piano-sized mouth.

Bonus: Kuroshio Sea – 2nd largest aquarium tank in the world.
