This American river shark has a tag due to humans to track this shark in case if it attacks people.

The American River Shark is even more freshwater-tolerant than bull sharks, just like its cousin, the Asian river shark. It lives in almost all rivers of California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Oregon, Kansas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina.. It feeds on smaller fish, crustaceans, drowned insects, small amphibians, small lizards, and small mammals (including pets). It resembles a hybrid between a bull shark and a mako shark, but is browner in color.
