    I know it's not rational, but I'd whole lots rather be eaten by a bear than a shark.

    Many large sharks can survive for days in fresh water. One theory is that they get attracted to electrical impulses up river near populated areas.

    Bull sharks have their own salt gland and can stay in fresh water for months. They have been all the way to the first dam on the Mississippi at Alton,IL.

    While all that is true, the shark in the video is indeed a juvenile white shark. The river likely had a high enough salinity level to support him/her for a short time.

    That is not a bull. It is undoubtably a white. The fins and headshape not to mention white underbelly are unquestionably white pointer.
