About Tagged shark detection shark

Stocky shape. Flat snout.

Alternative names: river whaler, freshwater whaler, Swan River whaler.

The bull shark, Carcharhinus leucas, is found along coastlines in tropical and subtropical oceans, and in Australia occurs from central NSW coast, across the northern coast to Perth, Western Australia.

It is the only widely distributed shark that penetrates far into fresh water for extended periods where it sometimes breeds. Females normally give birth in estuaries and river mouths and the young can remain in the river for up to 5 years.

It is a dangerous shark due to its aggressive nature, powerful jaws, broad diet, abundance, and its habitat preference for shallow, murky inshore waters. It has a short snout which is wider than it is long, hence the name. Adults can range from 2 to 3.5 metres in length and up to 230 kg in weight. Bull sharks will eat almost anything including fish, other sharks and rays, turtles, birds, molluscs, crustaceans and dolphins. The teeth are triangular, saw-edged and very sharp. The belly is usually off-white, the top surface grey and the eyes small.

About Tagged shark detection shark

Torpedo shape. Pointy snout.

Alternative names: white pointer, great white shark.

White sharks, Carcharodon carcharias, are found near shore along most of the world's temperate coastlines but are relatively scarce compared to most other widely distributed shark species.

In Australia, White Sharks have been recorded from central Queensland, around the southern coast to North West Cape, Western Australia, but are more common in the south.

Only the underbelly is white: the top surface is grey to blue/grey or bronzy. The biggest recorded specimen was 7 metres long and 3200 kg. The teeth are large, saw-edged and triangular. The diet of young specimens (under about 3.5 metres) is mainly a variety of fish, rays and other sharks. Larger adults eat larger prey including marine mammals such as sea lions and seals, small toothed whales and otters. They also eat dead animals floating in the water. More bites on humans, including many fatalities, have been attributed to the great white shark than to any other marine animal. White Sharks are a protected species in all Australian states including NSW, and also in several other countries.
