More great white shark attacks are reported along the coast of California than any other place in the world. This 135-mile stretch called The Red Triangle is the “Grand Central” for great white sharks―that can top out over two tons in weight and 21 feet in length.  Now, Nat Geo WILD explores why these ultimate alpha predators attack us here so frequently. Do they see us as food or is it a case of mistaken identity? With riveting interviews from attack survivors and a team of shark experts, Shark Battleground: The Red Triangle examines why this location accounts for more than half of the world’s attacks.

Shark Battleground: The Red Triangle starts at 2P et/pt as part of the day-long marathon leading up to the premiere of Shark Attack Experiment Live at 9P et/pt.
