Best Shark Species

The Top Ten
1 Great White Shark The great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias), also known as the white shark, white pointer, or simply great white, is a species of large mackerel shark which can be found in the coastal surface waters of all the major oceans. It is notable for its size, with larger female individuals growing to 6.1... read more

The great white is the most recognizable shark ever. It's the one mostly used in movies, so everybody knows it. In my opinion, it is the king of the sharks.

I love sharks and have always wanted to see a great white. It's sad that they die in aquariums.

2 Tiger Shark The tiger shark is a species of requiem shark and the only extant member of the genus Galeocerdo. It is a large macropredator, capable of attaining a length over 5 m. Populations are found in many tropical and temperate waters, especially around central Pacific islands.
3 Hammerhead Shark

My all time favorite shark. It's like a great white with a hammer for a head! It's just awesome!

4 Whale Shark The whale shark is the world's largest living shark as well as the largest living fish. Whale sharks grow up to 45 ft. (13.7 m) long, and can weigh as much as 13 tons (11.6 tonnes). Their mouths alone are a whopping 6 ft. (1.8 m) across-big enough to gulp down three percent of their body weight in food... read more

While it looks like a terrifying giant, this shark is completely harmless. It feeds on plankton.

Largest shark ever! The whale shark is the ocean's gentle giant.

World's biggest fish right here.

5 Bull Shark The bull shark is a requiem shark that is considerably dangerous. These sharks live in both freshwater and saltwater environments. Bull sharks can be recognized by seeing a shark in freshwater and watching the shark due a hit and run.
6 Mako Shark

Fastest shark. Worshiped as a god by the Mayan people. 11th most dangerous shark. Most consumed shark. What more can you get.

7 Megalodon The megalodon is an extinct species of shark which was about 59 feet (18 meters) long and hunted in the seas until about 1.5 million years ago. It was similar to today's great white shark-but three times longer and 20 times heavier... read more

It should be #1 for many reasons:
A. It's a badass.
B. It's 60ft (18m).
C. The great white (the closest relative of the Meg) can swim up to 35mph, so imagine the Meg's speed.

This should be number 1 because this is the most dangerous shark that ever lived.

I would go wild if we were to discover this shark somewhere, deep in the ocean. It's never going to happen, mind you... but it would be awesome.

8 Great Hammerhead Shark

The biggest of the hammerhead species, there are only 10 known species to exist, and I pick this one.

9 Shortfin Mako

Totally the best shark - it's got the shape, the teeth, the coloring, the eye... and it will kill you.

That picture is intimidating.

10 Basking Shark
The Contenders
11 Sand Tiger Shark
12 Blue Shark
13 Angel Shark
14 Greenland Shark

The other comment is a lie. These sharks are extremely docile, and you can even swim with them. Look it up.

This thing can devour a human. We just do not swim in the cold waters. This shark ate fish, polar bears, deer, and much more.

15 Thresher Shark

Gotta recognize them for using unique strategies.

16 Nurse Shark

The first shark I ever saw in the ocean were two. One was around 7 ft, and the other was a bit bigger. My brother, my uncle, and I fed it some fish. I was 10 or 11 at the time.

17 Oceanic Whitetip Shark
18 Scalloped Hammerhead Shark
19 Blacktip Reef Shark
20 Goblin Shark
21 Lemon Shark
22 Whitetip Reef Shark
23 Cookiecutter Shark

I can't imagine what caused this shark to evolve the peculiar jaws it has.

24 Frilled Shark

Sharks are awesome. Snakes are awesome. Snake-shark is the best shark. Enough said.

25 Megamouth Shark Megamouth sharks are a species of deepwater shark. The first one of this species was discovered in 1976 when a U.S. naval ship discovered something very strange caught on its sea anchor. Scientists dubbed it megamouth for obvious reasons. Since then, the megamouth shark has proved to be extremely elusive... read more
