It is believed that sharks are immune to almost all diseases; they rarely get sick. However, no animal is immune all disease. A disease is technically defined as any deviation from normal, so even a broken bone could be considered a "disease". As for viral/bacterial diseases, no animal is immune to all diseases of that or any other type. Every animal is susceptible to something.
