The shortfin mako shark has been clocked at a sustained speed of 20 mph, but it can double or triple that speed for short periods of time.

Shortfin makos can reliably accelerate to 46 mph, and some individuals may even reach 60 mph.
Their torpedo-shaped bodies enable them to surge through the water at such a rapid speed. Mako sharks also have tiny, flexibile scales covering their body, allowing them to control the flow of water over their skin and minimize drag. And shortfin makos aren't just fast; they can also change direction in a split second. Their remarkable speed and maneuverability make them lethal predators.
