Sharks In Illinois ~ According to the Illinois Department of Conservation, in 1937 two commercial fishermen from Alton, Herbert Cope and Dudge Collins, caught a 5-ft, 84-lb bull shark in the Ohio River. It was displayed at the Calhoun Fish Market. Biologists later concluded from the photos that it was a bull shark, which can live in fresh water. From the Gulf at New Orleans up the Mississippi River to Alton is about 1,750 miles. Dams now prevent sharks from entering Illinois.

A Bull shark, which can live in both fresh and salt water. One of the many places the inhabit is the Amazon River and even the Mississippi River.
Among the most likely sharks to attack humans, bull sharks favor shallow coastal waters—the same places humans prefer to swim.
The aggressive Bull Shark can survive a long amount of time in fresh water, and can often be found in Lake Nicaragua. Because they often travel up stream in rivers and are ridiculously aggressive, many experts consider them the most dangerous shark in the world.
