Bull sharks are not only known for their stocky physique and aggression, but their behavior is dangerously unpredictable as well. In fact, bull sharks are responsible for the majority of shark attacks on humans. Bull sharks find habitat in shallow waters and are rarely found in waters deeper than 100 feet. Bull sharks can thrive in both salt water and fresh water, which dramatically increases the chances for people to experience a bull shark encounter.
"He could just turn around and destroy you," warned one of the friends that were looking on from the boat. Finally, the fisherman successfully revived the bull shark and the 300-pound animal simply swam away and disappeared into the depths.
"He's good, he's good. Perfect! That was bad ***!"
