A giant oceanic fish with rows and rows of razor-sharp pointed teeth.

The Great white shark is one of many shark species implemented in Dwarf Fortress. They are huge (about 2 tons) sea dwellers. They produce massive amounts of food when butchered, and they have a fairly high pet value of 500, so you may consider catching it alive with a fishery.

Their size and predatory nature make them excessively dangerous if encountered wild, but since most dwarves cannot swim, the danger they present is often second to drowning.

The proper use of a pit is for dumping captured enemies into a shark-infested pool. Unfortunately, functionality to allow one of your dwarves to sit on a throne and pet a cat while doing so has not yet been implemented.
