Black SharkThis evil shark is known as the reaper of the seas due to its jet-black body and ferocious nature. Like other sharks, its skeletal frame is composed entirely of cartilage. Because of this, despite its imposing size, it leaves not a single bone behind after it dies. All that remains are its sharp teeth, which ancient people believed to be the remnants of a mighty, godlike creature.
