Southern Cross University shark expert Daniel Bucher said recent sightings of bull sharks in the area, coupled with their tendency to hunt in dirty water close to shore, meant a bull shark was probably involved.

Five bull sharks were spotted recently circling in murky water under Missingham Bridge, only half a kilometre from the northern entrance to the estuary on North Wall where the boy was bitten.
