Though great whites get the bad rap, bull sharks are responsible for more (non-fatal) attacks on people.

This is commonly assumed to be a consequence of a ridiculously high amount of testosterone in bull shark blood. Indeed, bull shark testosterone has become something of a steroid craze among adventurous weight lifters.
