How many bull sharks have been seen in the Missouri River?

         I can’t find any stories about bull sharks in the Missouri River, but some have been found 2,360 miles up the Mississippi River in Alton, Illionois. They have also been found 2200 miles up the Amazon, and in pretty much every riverconnected to their coastal range. Their tolerance for fresh water allows them to swim far upstream.

         Along with tiger sharks and great whites, bull sharks are considered the most dangerous species of shark to humans. A bull shark may have been responsible for the 1916 cluster of shark attacks in New Jersey that inspired Jaws.
