Default Bull Sharks

I had a friend come up a few years ago with his kids. Neither of the kids would put even a pinky toe into the water - they were terrified of bull sharks! I explained that this is a fresh water lake with nothing here that bites but they were having none of that. "Bull Sharks swim upstream in rivers. They could be here!". Explaining that we were a hundred miles from the ocean and that there were a few dams in between meant nothing to them. Sad, really. They grew up only ever swimming in a pool. Needless to say they have never been back and remain in the sheltered confines of the backyard above-ground pool.
