About BullSharks

 

  • Most sharks have the same salt concentration in the blood as the sea water they are swimming in. This isn’t the case with Bull Sharks. Instead, they only have 50% of the salt concentration in their blood.
  • This makes them very special as they are able to switch from saltwater to freshwater very easily. The only consequence is they produce 20 times more urine when swimming in fresh water After about 10 years, they reach maturity.
  • Adults are normally about 3.5 meters (11) longand weigh approximately 300 kilograms (660pounds). Typically, females are  larger than and generally live longer.
  • Most males live for about 13 years, while females live about 17 years of age.

 

Habitat

 

  • These special hunters are migrants. They are found in many various areas including Oceans, rivers, and even some fresh water lakes!
  • They tend to stay in warm and moderately deep waters around 30 to 150 meters (150 to 500ft) deep.
  • It seems the Bull Shark favors the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans.
  • Some of their favorite rivers include the Brisbane River, Amazon River, Ganges River, Barhamputra River, Potomac River and the Mississippi River.
  • They have been spotted several hundred miles upstream in these rivers, but typically stay within 100 miles of the Ocean.
  • No attacks on humans have ever been recorded in these rivers. 
  • They are in fresh water lakes, too! It’s not too uncommon to see them in Lake Nicaragua and Lake Ponchartrain, just to name a couple.
  • But if there is easy access from a river and the lake is deep enough (about 30 meters or 150 feet), they’ll check it out and maybe even make themselves at home for a while.
