Sharks come in a variety of sizes and appearances, but their general shape is consistent – everyone can recognize a shark when they see one; having a prominent dorsal fin, large mouths filled with multiple rows of razor-sharp teeth, and small black eyes.

This build represents a large shark, such as a bull shark, hammerhead, or tiger shark. They are solitary, night-time hunters.
