KWAZULU-NATAL – Zambezi – Natal Sharks

Bull sharks are common in warm, shallow waters along coasts throughout the world. They are, due to their habits, probably responsible for the majority of attacks on humans that take place near shore, including many attacks attributed to other species. Bull sharks can travel inland by swimming up rivers, and have a unique tolerance for fresh water. Those found far from the ocean are the same species as the seaborne Bull shark, and are not true freshwater sharks. Bull sharks are large, the males of this species can reach 2,1 meter long and weigh 90 kg. The females can be much larger, 3,5 meter long and 230 kg. The name, ‘bull shark,’ comes from its stocky shape and broad, flat snout. In Africa the Bull Shark is also known as the ‘Zambezi River Shark’ due to its presence in the Zambezi River. The Bull Shark is an omnivorous animal. It routinely preys upon fish, sharks (especially young sandbar sharks), rays, turtles, echinoderms, birds, mollusks, dolphins, and almost anything else it can find.
