The female bull sharks come to the Riviera Maya every winter to breed and then dive into deeper waters. You have the chance to see them from November to February. Female bull sharks migrate just off of Playa del Carmen.
When these female bull sharks are ready to give birth to the little ones they move to another location. The females go close to fresh water when they are ready to give birth.
They generally eat fish, but they have been known to eat turtles, birds, dolphins, land-based animals and sometimes even other sharks.
