Deadly Creatures/Bull Shark



Hello Tuesday and have to say you have started out pretty good, as in I wasn't too tired when I woke up this morning although I was slightly annoyed that I was up and dressed at 5.50am and Jessica didn't drop Leo off till 6.40am I could have spent an extra half hour in bed asleep. 

Also being told that Leo needed a shower to wash his hair annoyed me.

Speaking about being annoyed I find Natasha sitting pretty much on top of the heater annoying but I don't feel the cold as much as her.

Dad has been transferred to the rehabilitation ward they moved him yesterday afternoon, my sister Sue is staying with mum for a bit to help her get around.

Let us move on to this weeks deadly creature, today I have picked the Bull Shark, they live throughout the world in shallow warm ocean waters but have also been known to swim up into freshwater rivers. Officially, bull sharks have made it up the Mississippi as far as Illinois.

They eat almost anything but their diet consists mainly of fish, humans are not part of a bull shark's normal prey but that doesn't mean they will not bite you if you get in their way and they are hungry.

You may wonder if you can eat a bull shark, well if you want to you can but it really isn't that healthy and can even be poisonous and you might want to give it a good wash first as sharks urinate through their skin.

If you are wondering how long they live well on average about 16 years, when born they are about 71 centimetres long or 28 inches, they grow to about 3 metres long, females have between 4 & 10 babies each mating season.

Dear Jo-Anne, thanks for the info. I've never seen a shark because I've only been by an ocean once. I have to admit to both a respect and a fear of them. Peace.

I've been wondering what was happening with your dad. I hope he does well in rehab and your mom is able to get there to visit with him.
