Sharks in the Mississippi River?

You bet.

On Sept. 8, 1937, fishermen caught a bull shark in the upper Mississippi River north of St. Louis near Alton, Illinois. The subadult shark weighted 84 pounds (38 kg) and was more than 5 feet long. Local reports in 2016 and 2017 claim bull sharks are still in lakes and waterways around St. Louis, more than 1,000 miles from the Gulf of Mexico.

Bull sharks can swim in freshwater and saltwater with equal ease, making the lethal shark one of the most dangerous in the world to humans.
