A medium-sized, aggressive, territorial fish. It can be found in shallow oceanic waters, and has also been known to travel up large rivers.

Bull sharks are cartilaginous fish that can be found in tropical oceans. At 2.5 times the size of an average dwarf, they are fairly large fish and produce a decent amount of meat when butchered. As fully-sized creatures, they can't be fished by fisherdwarves, but can be caught with a drowning chamber. An infant bull shark is called a bull shark pup.

Being cartilaginous, bull sharks won't give bones if butchered (though they'll still provide a skull).

Some dwarves like bull sharks for their aggressive nature.

Admired for its aggressive nature.
