Ten Most Dangerous Sharks

anthonybecerra831

The Top Ten

1 Great White

I swear if I ever see any great white I am gonna get a heart attack before it can attack me.

Great white sharks are the most dangerous sharks because they cause more human deaths than any other sharks

Man I was hoping for the megalodon was on this list anyway great whites are one of my favorites.

I am really scared of sharks but it is fun to learn about them

2 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.

This shark has caused more deaths than the tiger shark and the great white put together. It can go in rivers and will attack anything. They also go to very shallow waters where most people snorkel and surf. I should know I am a shark expert, I go swimming with them (in cages of course) and the bull shark is more agressive by far. Thank you

Actually the Great White has a larger amount of unprovoked attacks than the Bull Shark, and the Great White killed more - LOL101

The great white is much larger in size and one bite can snap you in half. That shark has had 1st place for years and (in my personal opinion) still deserves it. Most attacks from a great white would end up fatal- bull sharks are relentless and, yes, can swim in fresh waters, but they don't have as much power in their jaws and really have to be munching on just the right spot to kill you. - sharkfreak101

The bull shark has #3 in the most deadly animal to humans. I have a lot shark knowledge and know that a great white rarely ever attack humans. But bull sharks are just kill on sight.

The bull can go anywhere and not to nibble!

3 Tiger Shark 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.

Tiger, sharks, can, eat, anything, just, like, a, goat. Call, it, the, goat, of, the, sea

Has killed the second most people only to great whites

For sure deserves third place

They are yolo

4 Hammerhead

There are 3 Hammerheads that are potentially dangerous to humans- The Great hammerhead, the Scalloped hammerhead, and the Smooth hammerhead. Those are the three out of the 10 Hammerheads, so LOL101, there are two more that should be listed there as well

This is overratted. Bad shark for the top 7... - toptenjoe

This is is a misunderstanding. The GREAT HAMMERHEAD should be here - LOL101

5 Blue

Blue sharks r perty

6 Mako Shark

They’re not only quite dangerous, but they’re also FAST! I saw a video of the most dangerous sharks, and the mako (shortfin) was number 6. There was some dead fish hanging from a boat and the shark was ripping it to shreds, VERY close to the camera. I was wondering how the cameraman was ALIVE after that. That’s a reason why I never want to be a marine biologist or photographer unless I was in a state-of-the-art SUBMARINE. - PhoenixAura81

7 Sand Tiger Shark

That was bitten of a ugly face

That's what bit off your ugly face

8 Oceanic White Tip Shark

I believe that the Oceanic White Tip Shark is the most dangerous shark. While I do not believe that sharks want to hurt other people and they do not, I do know that they have killed numerous people a long time ago, research says.

This shark killed 600 people in a boat crash! Should be number 4! - toptenjoe

9 Megalodon 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 is basically a giant great white. Although we don't know much about it with man, it would be very deadly

Bigger than a whale shark stronger than a great white. nothing blocks its path

I can't even HE SHOULD BE FIRST PLACE HE KILLS WHALES WITH ONE BITE ARE PEOPLE STUPID?!?!?

How is it not 1st

25 Angel Shark

I've heard when they bite, they won't easily let go. However, they're too small to kill you.

26 Wobbegong
27 Whale Shark 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.

They’re not dangerous except when you’re too close to it’s mouth. - PhoenixAura81
