    Yes, sharks swim far up rivers, even two thousand miles up the Mississippi.
    Whut? 2,000 miles?

    How? How can they survive that long in fresh water?

    A great white. 5 victims.
    That is what he just said you gumba.....'cept there is doubt that it was a great white. More likely a bull shark.

    Smithsonian says it was a great white, that 1916 marauder.

    Of course there are. There are sharks all the way up the coast of Canada. The Greenland shark can survive under ice.

    They don't know. Great Whites can not function in any river, let alone a creek. They become disoriented and drown.

    I've been a fisherman all my life. I studied to be an ichthyologist.

    It's the specific type of shark that is famous for this. Bull sharks very aggressive and can do fresh or salt water.
    This isn't new. Didn't grandma tell you to stay out of water ?
    Now you know why.
    Thanks from Madeline
