Bulls and Lemons are both known to attack people. Bull sharks are particularly dangerous - maybe the worst of all maneaters. White Sharks tend to strike at the center of bodymass then spit out the victim to hover nearby and wait for him to bleed to death (allowing the victim time to get out of the water), but Bull Sharks strike arms and legs. They will rip a limb off (or strip the muscle if they can't bite through the bone)and then come straight back in to nail another.
Survive a White Shark attack and you will usually have a very interesting crescent-shaped scar on your torso to show off. Survive a Bull Shark attack and you will have a hook at the end of the stub of your arm or a prosthetic leg to show off.
Bulls also like shallow water and can often be seen swimming right beside waders and swimmers. Bulls are very aggressive and can get up to twelve feet long.

Living just north of Panama City, we spend numerous weekends at the beach each year. Although I haven't been in the water since I saw Jaws, my children and husband love it. They surf, ride jet skis, everything. I sit on the beach and watch. I once met a gentleman who flies a small plane up and down the beach all day long. He pulls one of those banners advertising a local eatery or juke joint. He wasn't going in the water either. He stated that every day he see rather large sharks swimming around unsuspecting bathers. Nope, not me.
