TRUTH !!
The bull shark is the best known of 43 species of elasmobranch in ten genera and four families to have been reported in fresh water.

There are more than 500 bull sharks in the Brisbane River; one was reportedly seen swimming the flooded streets of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia during the Queensland floods of late 2010/early 2011.
Several were sighted in one of the main streets of Goodna, Queensland, Australia shortly after the peak of the January 2011 floods.

There are greater numbers still in the canals of the Gold Coast, also in Queensland, Australia. A large bull shark was caught in the canals of Scarborough, 2 hours north of the Gold Coast.

In the Pacific Ocean, it can be found from Baja California to Ecuador. The shark has traveled 4,000 kilometers (2,500 mi) up the Amazon River to Iquitos in Peru.
It also lives in fresh water Lake Nicaragua, and in the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers of West Bengal and Assam in eastern India and adjoining Bangladesh. It can live in water with a high salt content as in St. Lucia Estuary in South Africa.
After Hurricane Katrina, many bull sharks were sighted in Lake Ponchartrain.
Bull sharks have occasionally gone up the Mississippi River as far upstream as Alton, Illinois. They have also been found in the Potomac River in Maryland.
