Bull shark
This aggressive shark can been found in both warm oceans and fresh water. They frequent river mouths and estuaries and have even been spotted thousands of kilometers up river. They are also known as the Zambezi shark, grow to about 4 meters and are responsible for many attacks on humans.
Tiger shark
These beautiful sharks can grow to a massive 5 meters in length and are characterised by the vertical stripes along their flanks. They prefer warm water.
Great hammerhead shark
There are about 9 species of these oddly shaped sharks, the largest of which reaching lengths of up to 6 meters. It is believed that the reason their head has evolved into a hammer-like shape is to enhance their vision.

Unfortunately many of these sharks are critically endangered from overfishing and finning - about 73 million sharks are caught annually. We need to protect these awesome apex predators as they keep our oceans in balance. If you love sharks as much as we do please visit this link and see how you can get involved and informed.
