The Bull shark (Carcharhinus leucas) can be found all over the world. If you are not familiar with the name Bull shark, it’s because it is also called by a lot of other names including the Zambezi shark, river shark, estuary whaler, Nicaragua shark, shovelnose, Swan River Whaler, Bull Whaler, square-nose, Fitzroy Creek Whaler, cub shark and Van Rooyen’s shark. It can be mistaken for the Ganges shark or Sundarbans. It does not have the same reputation as the Great White, it is still considered to be the one of the most dangerous sharks by experts. It can swim upriver into fresh water lakes. It is thought to be the culprit in many other unreported shark attacks in under-developed areas. There have been 104 reported attacks resulting in 26 fatalities.
