Great HammerheadThis hammerhead is aggressive in nature. It is the only known hammerhead that eats other hammerheads. They have even been observed eating their children.
Sandtiger SharkSandtiger sharks actually take gulps of air at the oceans surface to help with buoyancy. This allows them to stay motionless while they hunt for prey. Don't bump into them though, they bite.
Gray Reef SharksThese sharks are thought of as curious rather then aggressive, many scuba divers come in contact with them. They are usually just checking you out, but if they don't like they way you feel, they will attack. If a Gray Reef arches its back into an "s" shape, time to roll, cause that dude it about to freak.

Tiger sharksAlthough the tiger shark normally swims slowly, it's speed can increase when pursuing prey. However, what really makes its so deadly is its wide appetite. Known as the garbage men of the sea, tiger sharks will eat just about anything, including humans, specifically, Bethany Hamiltons left arm.. Some scientist believe this is to help with buoyancy.
