Fastest Shark in the World
The shortfin mako (Isurus Oxyrinchus) with recorded swimming speeds exceeding 56 km/h is the fastest shark. By comparison, the fastest human swims at only 7.5 km/h. The shortfin mako is also the highest leaping shark. It can jump 19 feet 8 inch out of the water- that’s longer than the average school bus. It has even leapt directly into fishermen’s boats.
So it is not only the fastest shark in the world but also hisghest leaping shark in the world.
