Bull Shark Habits

Experts say Saturday’s victim was likely attacked by a six-foot long Bull Shark.

Despite their rather small and stout body type, many experts consider Bull Sharks the most dangerous in the world.

Part of the reason is that Bull Sharks are the only sharks that can live in either fresh or salt water and they prefer shallow, coastal waters less than 100-feet deep.

They will eat just about anything…other sharks, dolphins, sea turtles and birds.

They are nearly blind but have a keen sense of smell and can detect erratic movements from long distances.

Statistics show only three kinds of sharks consistently attack humans: the Great White Shark, Tiger Shark and Bull Shark.
