Shark Week

So as I mentioned before, this week is shark week. So I thought I would try and do some educating. And as a bonus try and do a cool shark picture of the day.

Its a myth that sharks are only found in salt water. There are a few that are found in freshwater. Even in the US. There is a report that someone was attacked in Lake Michigan back in 1947. I could not find any documentation of this, but it is well know that bull sharks have been found in the Mississippi as far up as Illinois.

So here are some freshwater shark ID charts. So if you are in freshwater and are getting attacked. Take a minute and try and identify the shark, before you run and scream out of the water.
