4 Bull Shark 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.

The bull shark is the most dangerous shark species and not the 5 best shark this shark is the greatest not the great white a bulk shark would destroy a great white

It is my favorite animal but almost all of its attacks are fatal they do not attack as much great whites and tiger sharks

It kills hundreds of people a year

The Bull shark does not kill hundreds of people a year. I don't know where you heard that, but there are only about 70 attacks occurring a year out of ALL the shark species, and only around 16 of them are fatal. - sharkfreak101

5 Mako Shark Mako Shark

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

Hammer heads are very much underrated. THEY DESERVE BETTER
