- The Mudjimba dog beach in Queensland is home to hundreds of bull sharks
- Some sharks as large as 2 meters have been found swimming in the popular area

A river that is very popular with swimmers during the day, houses hundreds of bull sharks at night that emphasize the dangers of swimming in the dark.
The drinking spot on the Mudjimba dog beach on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland is a hotspot for families and pets.
The waterway is located at the mouth of the Maroochy River and is therefore a common resting place for sleepy sharks.

Fishermen have reported shaking two-meter-long sharks and saying there are hundreds around the busy swimming spot.
Swimmers who are unaware of the large number of sharks in the waters can be an easy prey for the hungry beats.
Bull sharks can grow to three and a half meters and eat everything from small fish to other sharks.
The bull shark can be very aggressive and together with the great white and tiger he is responsible for most human attacks.
Rob Johnston has pulled out numerous bull sharks while fishing in the waters of the Mudjimba dog beach.
& # 39; Bullsharks are always there. There are literally hundreds, & Mr. 39 told Johnston Yahoo News Australia.
Johnston considered the area too dangerous for himself or his pet to swim in after witnessing the population of huge sharks.

Shark protection expert Tony Isaacson from ProjectAWARE said swimmers needed more education to prevent a fatal attack.
& # 39; If we don't inform the public that this is the shark's territory, there could be an incident & he said.
Mr. Isaacson said that the community should be aware of the sharks and that the correct signage should be provided.
He said that after heavy rainfall, the water becomes cloudy and sharks bump into things to see if they are edible.
The Maroochy River will always be the home of bull sharks and experts say that people must learn to coexist with the feared creatures.
