What is the fastest shark in the world?

  • Great white shark
  • Lemon shark
  • Mako shark correct

    The shortfin mako shark is probably the champion speedster among sharks. It is an open ocean sprinter, with a highly streamlined body, a lunate tail supported by keels, a sharply pointed snout, large eyes and some of the wickedest-looking teeth. Underwater and unimpeded by a fishing line, the Short-fin Mako has been reliably clocked at 31 miles per hour.
