Asian-river-shark

This Asian river shark is in California's Lake Tahoe.

The Asian River Shark is even more freshwater-tolerant than bull sharks. It lives in rivers of China, Mongolia, Thailand, India, Burma, and Cambodia. It feeds on smaller fish, crustaceans, small amphibians, small lizards, and small mammals (including pets). It resembles a hybrid between a bull shark and a blue shark, but is browner in color. It was also introduced to rivers of Oregon, California, Nevada, Arizona, and Utah.
