Top 5 Deadliest Sharks

Top 5 Deadliest Sharks


Gliding just below the surface, these ancient
apex predators can transform a nice summer day into blood-soaked mayhem in a matter of
seconds. Here are the 5 deadliest sharks: 5 – The Bull Shark There are more than 375 shark species, but
only a handful are considered particularly deadly. Our pick for the Number Five deadliest shark
certainly earns its place. Bull Sharks grow 2 to 3 1/2 meters long and
clock in at 90 to over 230 kilograms in weight. They are known for their tendency to head-butt
victims before moving in to attack. What makes them particularity alarming is
their proximity to humans. Unlike other risky sharks, they live in warm
water near coasts worldwide, making a human encounter with a Bull Shark far more likely
than with many other species. Think you’re safe outside the sea? Think again. Bull Sharks can, and do infiltrate freshwater
rivers! Their physical makeup, especially highly developed
kidneys, grant them access to rivers and lakes up to a thousand miles inland. They’ll snack on almost anything, including
dolphins, various fish and other sharks. You that right. The Bull Shark is a cannibal. So how many human victims has this shallow
water savage slaughtered? Bull Sharks attack 104 people annually, a
third of which are fatal. Number Four- The Oceanic Whitetip
Coming in at Number Four on our countdown of deadliest sharks is the Oceanic Whitetip,
a horror to mariners for centuries. These audacious open-water opportunists are
unwelcome first-responders to any nautical disaster. They love the thrill of the kill and have
been responsible for an unknown number of deadly attacks of the poor souls unfortunate
enough to find themselves stranded within their company. The USS Indianapolis is one of the best-documented
cases of the brutality of their attacks. Up to 800 sailors perished in the incident. Oceanic Whitetips are smaller sharks, weighing
170kg and growing to 4 meters long. #4 THE OCEANIC WHITETIP
USS INDIANAPOLIS HORROR FOR MARINERS
800 SAILORS PERISHED But don’t let their smaller size fool you. Their jaws are exceptionally powerful and
devastating. Oceanic Whitetips don’t limit their onslaught
to unlucky seamen. They have been known to go after swimmers
and divers with ruthless zeal. In 2010 Oceanic Whitetips orchestrated a series
of bloody attacks in the Red Sea, which left one woman dead. Number Three – The Shortfin Mako
Number Three on our list of the Five Most Dangerous Sharks is the Shortfin Mako also
known as the blue pointer. They are 4m of fast-moving fish and their
lightning speed has earned them a place on this list. Shortfin Mako aren’t especially problematic
for humans while in the water, but for fisherman it’s a different story. The shark’s speed causes intense momentum,
giving it the ability to hurl out of the water, sometimes landing unexpectedly onto fishing
boats. They are the fastest shark recorded, reaching
speeds of 32 km an hour, which enables them to jump as high as 6m out of the water. Shortfin Mako sharks have a tendency to fling
themselves right out of their natural habitat into ours, like a real life Sharknado. The ensuing damage can be devastating to vessels
and fatal to fisherman. Their weight alone causes horrendous injuries
among shocked sailors who have suddenly found a shark in their midst. 45 attacks and 3 fatalities annually are attributed
to these speed demons. When Shortfin Mako sharks aren’t terrorizing
watercrafts, they’re zooming around the ocean in a figure 8 pattern looking for prey. They may pose little threat to swimmers, but
be beware if your boat is bobbing above them. 2 – The Tiger Shark
Jaws might haunt your nightmares as the ultimate villain of the seas, but you’d be forgetting
about his little, equally vicious, brother. Our number two pick is a known man-eater and
is horrifyingly prevalent in tropical coastal waters. Australia and Hawaii suffer the brunt of these
vicious beasts that glide through their waters. It is as aggressive as it is common, The Tiger
Shark, also known as the “garbage can of the sea” for it’s less than picky appetite. It will eat anything, including people, so
an unlucky encounter with a Tiger Shark could be your last. Tiger Sharks are the fourth biggest shark
at 3.5 to 4.5 meter long and their weight ranges from 385 to over 600 kg. Their jaws are designed to pulverize even
the hardest shells of sea turtles, making them no match for humans. These salt-water bruisers have distinct vertical
stripes and an attitude to match their name. Tiger Sharks are responsible for 155 attacks
and 29 fatalities per year. 1 – Great White
Are you hearing the theme music yet? If so, you already know… Number one on our list of Deadliest sharks
is none other than The Great White. Great White Sharks have a reputation as oceanic
demons, rising from the depths to snatch and butcher unsuspecting swimmers. Our hysteria of this creature is not totally
unfounded. Great White Sharks account for one-third to
one-half of all shark attacks worldwide. At 4.5m long and over 2,000 kg in weight,
they are formidable and powerful beasts whose preferred method of consumption is to rip
their victims to pieces and swallow them whole. Great whites can identify a single drop of
blood in 100Ls of water, which makes you think twice about jumping into the sea with a skinned
knee! They are a fast, fearsome, apex predator that
often mistakes humans for their preferred prey of seals, sea lions and other water-dwelling
animals. While Humans aren’t necessarily on the menu,
that’s small comfort when you consider that Great Whites are responsible for over 400
attacks and 74 fatalities each year! Are they the bloodthirsty maniacs that Hollywood
has painted them to be? They are certainly terrifying and can, and
do, inflict gruesome damage, but the more we learn about Great Whites, the more we discover
that they simply aren’t random killing machines. Just be careful if you’re floating above
them with your surfboard!

  1. Watch the biggest and most dangerous shark, the MEGALODON here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qpgfql-tLhM

  2. There is a small clan of sharks that live and breed in a lake/river area in South America. At least that is what a scientific article said

  3. Jaws is based off of a bull shark so I would say the are more dangerous than a short finned mako. Bull sharks and tiger sharks aren’t actually that closely related, hardly cousins. Bull sharks are more closely related to black nose sharks. Their common ancestor is the Helicoprion. You should probably do more research before doing these types of videos. Just go on google scholar, and you will find multiple articles on each of these sharks. To fact check must of my information for the shark lineage look up phylogenetic tree of sharks.

  4. I don’t know why he’s making these sharks seem bad for killing “104 people each year” (which isn’t true). Of course shark attacks are going to happen WE ARE IN THEIR WATER. An estimated amount of 273 million sharks are killed by humans each year. Who’s the real killer 🙄

  5. 4:17 is not the same tiger shark that you were talking about. This is a sand tiger, which are supposedly extremely docile, although the rows of teeth are intimidating. The Tiger 4:15, is the killer. Sand tiger and tiger are very very different sharks.

  6. Complete misinformation. Bull sharks should be #1, tiger sharks #2 And the great white #3.. there really isn't no #4 And #5. And that sailor story is just a fable. I'm sure they drowned. Bull sharks have the highest testosterone than any other living creature in this world. Meaning more so than a large bull elephant, a ape, a buffalo. That's what makes them so dangerous, they are out to kill you and won't stop until they do. Thank goodness they aren't huge sharks. The very first picture you showed us of the tiger shark, with all those teeth, wasn't even a tiger shark. That was a SAND TIGER SHARK, gentle as ever, even though it has lots of teeth.

    Yes the tiger shark is dangerous, because it will bite anything that it comes across. A big bite can be fatal. But the tigers wont hunt you down after an attack, to finish you off like the bull shark does.. Great white sharks are very placid compared to the other 2 sharks. Great whites usually attack humans on surfboards, as it takes humans for a seal, but this usually ends up being fatal, because of the massive bite that the shark took, before it decidedi it didn't want you.

    I doubt any human died from a mako or a reef shark.

  7. most of your information is wrong, and is very against sharks, I swear you made those numbers up, Sharks are very gentle creatures and act very much like dogs, diving with them is amazing and there often very scared of humans, just swim directly at them and they go away

  8. Another video that reveals the lack of knowledge about sharks !!! In addition, "dramatic" music is always used

  9. 2018 Yearly Worldwide Shark Attack Summary by University of Florida: 130 accidents, 5 fatal by all sharks.
    This shitty "document": 400 accidents, 74 fatal by only Great White.

    You should delete this video, a lot of incorrect informations.

  10. You said the oceanic white tip shark at 4 a.m. long is it big but don't let its size fool you. And with that said only showed like two pictures of an actual Oceanic whitetip the rest were Caribbean and white tip reef sharks. But then you say the tiger shark is the fourth biggest shark and how monstrous it is at 3 and 1/2 to 4 meters long. Oceanic white tips for one aren't that small 4 meters is a big fucking shark and the tiger shark gets bigger than the Oceanic whitetip. I'm not trying to insult you I'm just saying.

  11. mako but not a hammerhead? hammerheads are a much more versatile and predatory hunters than makos.

    This video was terrible, anybody who knows a little about sharks can see through the lack of research here.

  12. You act like sharks are the most dangerous but no they are the least of your worries attacks do occur but deaths are extremely rare.

  13. This is probably the most stupid video about sharks I have ever watched. And your accent is awful. Not to mention that voice you are making. #ImWithSharks

  14. Crap video. Still trying to scare people? ….WHAT LURKS BELOW. Give it a break. Nothing but drama. Watched the first part (Bull Shark) and mostly saw Tiger Sharks, FFS. 🙁

  15. This video is garbage. Bad information and the shark shown is almost never the species the video is talking about at the moment.

  16. Great White 400 attacks 74 Fatal Annually. What a load. World wide shark attacks, All Sharks, not just the White in 2018 was 66 attacks 6 Deaths. Get I right or don't bother.

  17. I will tell you what kind they are.
    bullshark (L) whitetip (S)Mako (L) tiger shark (XL)Great white (XXL)

  18. If "deadly" refers to deadly to humans, Bullshark should be #1. They might not have the highest record of human deaths (that goes to Great White, or Oceanic Whitetip but the majority of whitetip speculated attacks can't be verified), but a vast majority of experts consider them to be the most dangerous to humans because of their aggressive and territorial behavior coupled with their proximity. They also think the actually number of bull attacks is higher than reported because they believe people misidentify the shark when in coastal waters.

  19. If the blood is seal blood or fish they do not care about human blood at least as much is said they think humans taste awful they spit you right out,

  20. Go to Australia and you'll rethink this bogus info.
    Tiger sharks are number 1
    Bullsharks are number 2.
    Great whites haven't had many attacks since the 90's cause they are endangered.

  21. absolutely false image created here. please research about sharks and don't believe those "spectacular" statistics

  22. Couldn't they find a narrator that can pronounce words? And I'm sure he meant, "making humans no match for them.", but maybe the writer is as bad and the narrator.

  23. You research is incorrect, the bullshark is the most dangerous and also the shark in jaws was based off of a bullshark.

  24. There is so much wrong information. Just stop patronizing sharks as evil creatures out to get you. This could have been a video on assets of traits and body details that makes sharks good hunters of prey they eat, but not a video on how many human deaths have occurred. That just gives people the wrong idea on sharks. Humans have killed/killing more sharks than there have been shark attacks ( not deaths ) in history.

  25. This is the worst documentary about sharks. It’s videos like this that give people the wrong impression about animals. For anyone reading this, do some research about how sharks are misunderstood.

  26. You really make sharks look like “man eaters” they don’t go for humans… if the attack they mistake humans for prey

  27. Pfffft everyone is just invading the sharks plus why would people go to anything that could risk them that's just stupid.

  28. Bull sharks and mako sharks are more aggressive and vicious in the way they attack, makos are also the fastest shark which makes them harder to get away from, also bull sharks are more aggressive than most animals as well as all sharks, I cant say which one is more deadly, personally I think makos would be worse just because it would be alot harder to defend yourself, where as a bull shark would more often butt you with their enlarged hardened nose, however bull sharks have more range and chances to be around humans considering their adaptability to go into fresh and salt water so to me it's a mix up between the two, but since this is deadly not aggressive, you have a high chance to die from a great white and bull shark than mako if they get their teeth on you, that being said I dont know the exact statistics of the amount of people who die to attacks from each kind of shark therefore I cannot attest to which is the most deadly atm, I'm sure someone will either tell me about it in a reply

    Edit: So deadliest is in fact the Great White with 80 unprovoked fatalities to the bull sharks 27 unprovoked fatalities, bull sharks might be the most aggressive but clearly the great white is a more efficient killer(not surprising considering they haven't had to evolve in hundreds of years which is an understatement tbh)

    Edit 2: Tigers have 31 unprovoked fatalities also apparently makos arent aggressive unless provoked, but considering how they do get provoked easily its understandable as to why I considered it but I do stand corrected in that 1 is the great white, 2 is the tiger and, 3 is the bull shark, 4 is the requiem shark of which I've never heard of with 7 confirmed fatalities and, 5 is the blue shark with 4 unprovoked fatalities

  29. Am I hearing this right? Lol what did he say at 2:20??? lol and actually there are not that many shark attacks if u do ur research. Most of them could be scared, some may bump or push u around a bit, some could just leave a scratch and some mole some in rare situation are brutal and fatal attacks. They don’t really like humans it’s not what they prefer. Anyway unfortunately yes there are sad cases but to make it sound like there are so many shark attacks is not right! Most animal attacks come from bulls and cows, then dogs, crocodiles, snakes, spiders etc. hopefully it don’t happen to anyone but I’m still careful if I ever dare to go in the ocean u just never know no matter how rare …. it could be u

  30. Actually the bull shark is probably the most aggressive. I've surfed for many years and my encounters with a bull shark have always been sketchy. They will test you, and they will bite if its territorial and pissed off

  31. You Sir, sound like MF… ignorant a…..hole. Specially when presenting the great white shark. Be serious!!!!!

  32. dont hate on him not everyone can know everything about fucking sharks he made mistakes its ok we all people this does not makes him a moron but it makes u a moron for complaining

  33. This video is mixing some facts with a lot of bullshit. It is more for the sensation than for real information. And often they talk about a species and are showing an other meanwhile… poor video.

  34. So many things incorrect here, i.e., why show white tip reef sharks when you're talkin about oceanic white tips….LAME!

  35. People be saying oh sharks aren't as bad as you think, you can swim next to them and shit. Yeah your right, but who wants to watch a video about top 5 nicest sharks that are cute and cuddly.

  36. Maybe you should make a video of the dangers of being left handed. 2500 people die annually from using right handed products. I doubt you won't make it dramatic.

  37. the great white attacks 400 humans per year but because it thinks a human is a seal? nah sharks arent stupid if they want to take you they will do just that

  38. THE WHITETIP IS NOT DEADLY AND THATS ENOUGH DUMBNESS BUT SAYING MAKOS ARE DANGEROUS OK U NEED TO GET SOME RESEARCH DUDE

  39. I KNOW EVERY SINGLE THING ABOUT SHARKS BECAUSE I HAVE READ ABOUT 1000000000000 BOOKS ABOUT THEM BEFORE AND THEY ARE MY BIGGEST FEAR AND MY FAVOURITE ANIMALS SO DONT EVEN TRY TO TEST ME
