tiburón

hello!

i have a question about the origin of a certain word....the word is "tiburón" (which is clearly not a word in english, but the english translation is "shark").  anyone know where either the english or the spanish of this originated?

i heard somewhere that the spanish version originated from guarani, the native language of my country (paraguay).  just curious!
