“Bully for the swimmers”

Films: Red Water (2003)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Lake

Height/Weight: Half that of an average great white.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: Oil rigs suck. That's a basic fact. All they seem to do is make life in the water unbearable for all the creatures living in it. So bad that at least one of them is going to take a stand. And to those who get in its way, at least hope you're delicious.

History: An oil rig has taken up residence in a populated Louisiana river. But according to local tribesfolk, the restless spirit living in the river has been angered has taken the form of a shark to punish humanity. At the same time, a powerful bull shark has arrived to make a meal out of anyone in the river. And it seems dead set on heckling the rig.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After being led to the heart of the rig, the bull shark ends up taking a mouthful of drill, ripping it apart from the inside, but at the same time disabling the drill, ending the environmental problems. Its missing tooth is dropped in the water out of respect.

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-Rarely are any digital effects used, and as a result, this behemoth of a bull shark rips through the water and turns people into gore while making us want to avoid fresh water for some time. Was it a spirit? Was it not? And which one is worse?

Trivia: -Bull sharks are one of the few species of shark that primarily stick to fresh water due to a theorized bottleneck in their evolution that occurred during the last ice age. They don't interact with humans that much, but they are known for their violent aggression, so watch out.

-Bull sharks are typically widespread in the world, but some have been sighed going through the Mississippi River, making several swimming locations in the south rather dangerous. Also, they're about half the size of great whites, so keep that in mind.

In this swamp? Hey, it's kill or be killed all the time. And not just with the animals.

Okay, this shark is FAR from home.

Must have tried to eat a jawbreaker.

Still more dignified than Jaws IV.
"Wait, is this the sky or the sea?! I don't even know!"
