Description

Latin Name: Carcharhinus leucas  
Distribution: Various areas around the world  
 
The Bull Shark is a very dangerous shark because it can be very aggressive. It also makes its home near the shorelines of the world's oceans which puts it close to humans who may be at the beach. The Bull Shark is also known for actually being able to stay in freshwater for extended periods of time which is unique amongst saltwater sharks. Because it can stay in fresh water for so long it can often be found in inland streams and rivers that are not commonly known for having sharks. Shark attacks that are reported inshore are almost certainly caused by the Bull Shark. It is also one of the only sharks to makes its home near shores throughout the world.
