(Smithsonian Magazine)   96 years later, the Matawan shark attacks that terrified New Jersey and inspired "Jaws" still baffle ichthyologists of today, who lament mindless fear of sharks that prevented proper investigation of attacks at the time   (smithsonianmag.com) divider line 2

Keizer_Ghidorah: baka-san: Keizer_Ghidorah: A 9-foot great white shark as caught a day or so after the last attack with 15lbs of human remains in its stomach, which pretty much proves that there was a white shark and a bull shark involved.

At that size they are still at the fish eating stage. The pic of "alleged man eater" is more like 6 feet, which is about toddler sized for a White.

And we only have a newspaper account for the remains. No coroner report

Which indicates that it was a bull shark doing all of it, which fits with the general behavior and personality of the species. You don't get to be cosidered the most dangerous species of shark because of taco farts.

Eleven feet long, highest testosterone levels of any animal, frequents inshore waters that are generally murky and cloudy, indiscriminate of its diet.


Exactly. great white sharks get a farkton bigger than a bull shark, and are scarier visually, but a great white will generally ignore a person. We aren't their favored meal, and they don't want us specifically. A bull shark does not give a fark. It is mean, angry, and always hungry. Anything that gets in its way and can fit in its mouth it eats.

There's also no way that a great white actually went up a river and started snacking on people. It just wouldn't survive such a trip, and a tiny six to nine foot one especially wouldn't have done it.

If there is one thing for certain, it's that there were at least two sharks inolved. Three of the five attacks occurred in a river, and the only shark that can survive fresh water is the bull shark.
