Aries (March 21 - April 19): Mako Shark

You enjoy being No. 1, don't you, Aries. Your motto has always been, "If you're not first, you're last." Because of this, you obviously live a very competitive lifestyle. It's no wonder you're like the Mako, the fastest shark in all the sea. Just like you, these creatures are always on the go and don't have any time to waste.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Blacktip Reef Shark

You're one fancy human, Taurus. You may be known for your reliable and practical ways, but boy can you drop a pretty penny when you want to treat yourself. You know what you deserve and won't tolerate anything less than perfect, which is why you're the Blacktip Reef Shark. Not only are they incredibly gorgeous, they tend to do well in captivity. Obviously, they know the sea is disgusting and prefer to spend their days lounging about in a top-tier aquarium.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Bull Shark

Gemini, Gemini, Gemini, you poor unfortunate soul. Many rank you pretty low on the scale of best zodiac signs, mainly because you're seen as being two-faced and fickle. You never really can make up your mind, but that's part of what makes you so entertaining (and sometimes frustrating) to be around. You simply want the best of both words, which is why you can never decide on anything. This is why you're the Bull Shark. These carnivorous creatures can swim in both salt and fresh water, because they're not ones to limit themselves. If anyone can relate to that, it's you.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Whale Shark

Sensitive as can be, you're the most emotional sign in the zodiac. People just don't understand you all that well. Do they, Cancer? If any shark understands your pain of being misunderstood, it's the gentle giant that is the Whale Shark. They're not at all ferocious, but many still fear them because they are in fact sharks. One day, you'll both find humans (or sharks) who totally get you.

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22): Great White Shark

Sharks are basically the lions of the sea, and Great Whites are the kings of 'em all. Do we really need to spell out why you're most like these terrifying creatures of the sea? You enjoy being the center of attention and these beautiful beasts seem to get most of it, when it comes to the best shark, that is. Are you willing to share the spotlight with this animal?

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Blue Shark

Perfection takes a human form in you, Virgo. You hold yourself, and everyone in your life, to an incredibly high set of standards that are entirely impossible to achieve. Somehow, you manage. You're beautiful, you're flawless, you're just like a Blue Shark. These animals don't have a single imperfection about them, as far as they're concerned. But have you met your match?

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Nurse Shark

You're a social creature, Libra. You can't stand to be alone, which is why you constantly surround yourself with people from all walks of life. You enjoy being that shoulder everyone can come to cry on, which is why you're the Nurse Shark. These beauts get along with a wide variety of creatures and are incredibly important to the marine ecosystem. The ocean would notice their absence.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Hammerhead Shark

You're a mystery to most, because you prefer to keep to yourself. You have a harsh exterior, but you're really sweet and caring deep down. You just don't want anyone knowing that, which is why you're like the Hammerhead Shark. These creatures seem as deadly as the Great White, but they're relatively harmless. Don't tell them we told you, though.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Whitetip Reef Shark

Born an adventurer, you seek to take in all life has to offer. You'll try anything once and enjoy learning. You're like the Whitetip Reef Shark, because these creatures share your curiosity about the world around them. They stick to their natural habitat, but aren't afraid to explore the vast ocean, too. If you need a travel buddy, get yourself one of these sharks.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Blacktip Shark

Family is the most important thing in the world to you, Capricorn. You'd be lost without 'em, so you do anything for 'em. But you also want a family of your own—a huge one, to be precise. Blacktip Sharks tend to mate fairly often and pop out pups like its no big deal. If only it were that easy for you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Angel Shark

An individual through and through, there's not a soul alive who can tell you what to do. You march to the beat of your own drum and are never bothered by what others think of you, hence why your shark counterpart is the Angel Shark. Not only do these guys not look at all like sharks, but they share your desire to hide away from the world and be alone forever—aww!

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20): Spiny Dogfish Shark

Being the selfless and caring individual you are, you tend to give a lot of yourself away to those you feel need you most, causing you to sometimes feel taken advantaged of and mistreated. The Spiny Dogfish Shark deals with that all too often, as well. These sweet little guys are often used by humans for research or even food, because people are selfish and use others to make themselves feel better. We don't have to tell either of you that though, do we?
