Whatever it is, I'd knock his head soft before I brought him onboard.

I always think of makos as being very streamline. That seems very stout.

The white markings on the back of the first dorsal dead giveaway for a porbeagle

Also the location of the first dorsal and the shape of the tail points to porbeagle

Smaller Makos are not that stout either

But the size and shape of the dorsal and pectoral fins look like a shortfin mako. Either way, it is some form of mackerel shark and will put the chomp on your ass if messed with.

The dorsal on a shortfin would start well behind the pectoral

The length of the head would also be longer on a shortfin in relation to the pectoral
