Sand Sharks are Hardmode enemies found in the Desert Biome only during a Sandstorm. They are able to "swim" through all varieties of Sand, Hardened Sand, and Sandstone Blocks, but will collide normally against any other block. When they draw near a player, they will lunge out of the sand to attack.

The Sand Shark itself only appears in ordinary Deserts. There are other variants for different versions of the Desert:

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Similar to the many colors of Gel, the color of the Shark Fins dropped by Sand Sharks ( Sand Shark Fins.png ) are different from those dropped by Sharks ( Shark Fin.png ), 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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Cenx confirmed that the inspiration for the enemy was a joke with Safemanda's daughter.[1][2][3]
  • The sound the dash attack makes seems to be the same as the sound from the Vampire.
