The 沙鲨 is a 困难模式 敌怪 found in the 沙漠 生物群落 only during a 沙尘暴. It is able to "swim" through all varieties of 沙, Hardened Sand, and 沙岩块s, but will collide normally against any other block. When it draws near a player, it will lunge out of the sand to attack.
The Sand Shark only appears in ordinary 沙漠s. There are other variants for different versions of the Desert:
- Similar to the many colors of 凝胶, the color of the Shark Fins dropped by Sand Sharks ( ) are different from those dropped by Sharks ( ), but they are both the same item and stack together in the inventory.
- If a Sand Shark or any of its variants enters water, it will behave like a normal Shark.
- Cenx confirmed that the inspiration for the enemy was a joke with Safemanda's daughter.
- The sound the dash attack makes seems to be the same as the sound from the 吸血鬼.
