Re: Hello Everyone!

No big danger, then: as sharks need saltwater, putting them in a pond would be their death sentence.

LOL sorry, as a water biologist I just couldn't resist (rhyme unintended and unavoidable)

Couldn’t we put salt in the pond along with the sharks?

Bull sharks can live in fresh water. They will find you and kill you regardless of what water you live in.

It is a land that lives by the rule of Nietzsche: what does not kill you makes you stronger.

It is killing me, though.

I learn things every day from TrekBBS. (Okay, not really, but it seems like the thing to say.)

Wikipedia mentions two types of freshwater sharks: bull sharks and river sharks. I find the bull shark particularly cool because it’s a cannibal.

Re: Hello Everyone!

Card Sharks are the worst.

They even inspire mediocre 1980's game shows.

There was that movie "Creature" where the military created a human-shark hybrid that could walk on land. Stay vigilant.
