The Sand Sharks are the main antagonists of the 2011 American horror film Sand Sharks.
Capable of burrowing through loose sand at alarming speeds, Sand Sharks were vicious predators that terrorized the small island town of White Sands.
The Sand Sharks resemble great white sharks in body shape, but their skin is made up of large round scales of various shades of white and gray, giving them a mosaic look. They have very large dorsal fins and smaller second dorsal fins behind the first ones.
Powers and Abilities
The Sand Sharks possess the following powers and abilities:
- Sharp teeth
- Enormous size
Most of the sharks are encased in glass after the sand they are swimming in is heated by a flamethrower. The largest of the sharks and their "mother" is blown up after a flamethrower is thrown into her mouth. The ending of the film shows that one of the sharks has survived.
- The mayor of White Sands is played by Edgar Allen Poe IV, one of the last living descendants of famed poet Edgar Allen Poe.
