Great White will win killing Xiphatinus with a bite 
P3DR0-Migalhas's avatar
Well, this White Sharks are used to deal with big enemies like Saltwater Crocodiles or even bigger: the Killer Whales! So I would pick the Shark as the winner, he has sharper teeth, stronger jaw and he could be a faster swimmer. Xiphactinus's only advantages are his bigger mouth and maybe his heavier body.

The shark. Deadlier bite.

Both are around 20ft long and weigh 2 tonnes, so I'd call it a draw....

I think Xiph wins. The shark has skeleton mage of cartilage that would pobably make it weaker in combat, compared to a bony fish.

hmm...You have a point and i think it's 50/50.

Why do you think shark has such big chances?

Due to his cartilage skeleton and warm blood the great white would have far superior flexibility, speed and stamina. He could outmanouver and outrun the boney fish and a white sharks jaws do not give a damn about bones.

I don't think that bigger flexibility would make much difference in this fight though. As for superior speed and stamina - do we know enough of that fish metabolism to be sure... And even if so, I doubt it would be a big advantage.. that fish surely isn't slow itself.

Flexibility is always good in a turning fight and speed is a certain advantage of the shark. It has a better hydrodynamic shape and a skin surface that offers far less drag than the scales of a fish and the higher blood temperature of the sharks will speed up the chemical reactions in its muscles.
There is a reason why white sharks survived until now and these fish did not
