Bull sharks end up in all sorts of wacky water areas. Lakes and rivers. They can survive in both fresh and salt water. During hurricane season a lot of them end up in waters you'd think you'd never see them in. Also they have an extremely high testosterone level which makes them extremely dangerous.185139 04/01/2013
Not really WTF. Some sharks are fine in fresh water and are found in the damndest places.DorkJedi 04/01/2013
They usually need to return to the sea because they have salt glands that allow them to live in fresh water that need to be replenishedjamesbecker211 04/01/2013
Bull sharks are mean. Check out the Jersey Shore shark attacks.
There is a lot of disagreement on what did this, but the latest consensus was that a white did the attacks in the ocean, but a bull was responsible for the Matawan creek attacks.no_dice_grandma 04/02/2013
This was in Lake Pepin(Lake City, MN) a few years ago. They were scuba diving to investigate the site where a truck went through the lake ice and the divers found this little guy nearly dead in the cab. They pulled him out, took pictures, and let him go, because what the fuck else are you going to do with a shark in Minnesota?

Bull sharks have been found as far as 1705 miles up the Mississippi river, however, this appears to be even further up. Was this shark caught now?
If so, that's extremely bad news as that would appear to make them acclimatized to colder water, something they're not known for.
There's a native population in the Mississippi as well as the Illinois river. A female bull shark was supposedly netted ...ENRICOs 04/02/2013

I live on the Mississippi in Iowa, we're probably crawling with sharks if they're finding them that far north.Bejaroo 04/02/2013
As a person who's been chased onto land by a bullshark, don't get in the water. Ever.farfromahero 04/02/2013
This species is also known as the Zambezi shark in southern Africa where there is a river of the same name. It will swim miles up the river and attack bathing farmers.
They also swim up a local river where I live and will congregate around levies at night to prey on freshwater fish.WaywardWayfarer 04/01/2013

I spent a lot of time in my childhood up near hastings and where the St.Croix feed into the Mississippi. Very interested to see where they found the bull shark.wwlawren 04/01/2013
Brosky in the matching top/bottom puts his balls in the shark's mouth. It made me cringe.Bjkimm 04/02/2013
