Zambezi Shark
The bull shark, Carcharhinus leucas, also known as the Zambezi shark (UK: Zambesi shark[citation needed]) or unofficially Zambi in Africa and Nicaragua shark in Nicaragua, is a shark commonly found worldwide in warm, shallow waters along coasts and in rivers. The bull shark is known for its aggressive nature, predilection for warm shallow water, and presence in brackish and freshwater systems including estuaries and rivers.
The bull shark can thrive in both saltwater and freshwater and can travel far up rivers. They have even been known to travel as far up the Mississippi River as Illinois, and in the Ohio River,[citation needed] although there have been few recorded freshwater attacks. They are probably responsible for the majority of near-shore shark attacks, including many attacks attributed to other species. Bull sharks are not actually true freshwater sharks, despite their ability to survive in freshwater habitats (unlike the river sharks of the genus Glyphis).

Bull Shark: The street fighter of the ocean
The Bull shark, also known by the Zambezi Shark, is the deadliest shark in my opinion. Some people think the great white shark or the tiger shark but the reason I think the bull shark is the most dangerous is it rams its victims before they attack.
