Orca males grow to an average size of 19-22 feet, whereas females grow to an average length of 16-19 feet.
On average male great whites grow to a size of 11 to 13 feet, whereas female sharks grow to a length of 15-16 feet on average.
Male orcas weigh between 8000 to 12000 pounds on average, while females weigh between 3000 and 6000 pounds.
In contrast, the male great white shark weighs anywhere between 1150-1700 pounds, and the female great whites weigh around 1500 to 2450 pounds.
The typical life expectancy of a great white shark is 40 – 70 years old; this is a significant distinction from what the researchers’ thought initially.
