  • Abstract Stomach temperatures of three white sharks, Carcharodoncarcharias, (one reported previously and two new individuals) were intermittently recorded by acoustic telemetry at the South Farallon Islands, central California. Temperature profiles of the water column were obtained concurrently. Stomach temperatures were elevated over ambient water temperatures by as much as 14.3 °C. Stomach temperatures varied within a narrow range while ambient water temperature fluctuated over a much larger… CONTINUE READING
