I have read that several saltwater sharks can live in freshwater for a short amount of time.

What do you think of the possibility of the a shark being in the process of 'evolving' into a animal that can survive indefinitely in either salt water and/or fresh water?  And what could the enviromental repricusions in the future be?

there are only a couple of type's of shark that can live in fresh water the bull shark and i think the great white(not sure about GW)but even they can not speed large amount of time in fresh water, and remember the lakes are feed by the ocean so the waters not really all that fresh!any way its about time for shark week on Discovery Channel and they always address this type when it starts i'll let you know; it's runs from8:00 to 11:00 every night and you will learn more about them  then you ever wanted to know! rofl.gif  laugh.gif

There are several types of freshwater sharks. I, for one, own a Chinese banded highfin shark in my aquarium. They just arn't man-eaters.

There are over 43 species of freshwater sharks but I thought we were concentrating on the ones that travel from Salt to freshwater?
