2017 Deadly and Dangerous - Australia's Bull Shark!

This stunning, full-colour silver Proof pays tribute to one of the most widely feared creatures to grace our planet: the bull shark. Big, blunt-nosed and aggressive in nature, bull sharks enjoy shallow waters like bays, river mouths and estuaries. They can also be found in both salt and fresh water environments – a combination that makes them a fearsome threat to unsuspecting swimmers! They grow well over 2m in length, can weigh up to 130kg and are believed to be responsible for the majority of shark attacks worldwide.
