The great white shark is sometimes referred to as the “perfect predator,” having no natural predators. Great whites have been around, practically unchanged, for approximately 16 million years. They inhabit many of the world’s oceans, and are greatly feared everywhere.

Jaws is a spectacularly large great white, being far larger than any great white scientifically measured. Nothing is known about Jaws’ history before he showed up in 1975 at Amity Island, Massachusetts, which is otherwise known as Martha’s Vineyard. Once he arrived, Jaws quickly made his presence known, killing four people.

Many thrill seekers arrived to try to kill the shark, but only oceanographer Matt Hooper came to study the shark. Eventually, the local police chief, Martin Brody, teamed up with Hooper and professional shark hunter, Bartholomew Quint, to find and kill Jaws. In the resulting attempt, Jaws killed Quint and heavily damaged his boat before he was killed by Chief Brody.

Jaws, sometimes known as Bruce, had a similar sized mate, called Brucette, and a son, named Vengeance. There was also another, similar sized great white, which terrorized Seaworld in Orlando, Florida, but that shark may or may not have been related to Bruce.
