This article is about the Brute Shark. You may be looking for the Squidshark.

The Brute Shark is an aggressive fauna species found in the Twisty Bridges and its caves, Tree Spires and Lilypad Islands.

Appearance

The Brute Shark has a streamlined body that is mostly grey in color. The body features two large wing-like fins on each side. In some areas, bright yellow-colored bands adorn its body; on the snout, behind each fin, and one behind each of the eyes that continue until they meet on the back. It has a small dorsal and pelvic fin, but lacks a caudal fin entirely.

The head has two white pupil, side-mounted eyes that fit into shallow recesses in the head just behind the mouth. The mouth itself appears to be composed of a distinctly thicker layer of tissue to the rest of the body, possibly being bony plates. Its jaws are filled with sharp teeth, seven pairs on the upper jaw and six pairs on the lower, for a total of twenty-six.

Behavior

The Brute Sharks in the Lilypad Islands and Twisty Bridges are essentially at the top of their food webs. However, the ones located in the Tree Spires can be seen being attacked by the Chelicerate. It can be observed preying on small fish, Arctic Rays, and even the player. On top of its aggressive diet, the Brute Shark appears to move slowly but is actually rather nimble when attacking prey.

Design

The Brute Shark is a medium-sized predatory species that seems to take design inspiration from rays in the case of its wings, sharks for general body shape, and behaviour. The head bears a lot of similarities to reconstructions of the extinct Gorgonopsians.
