Feared by airship crews and coastal denizens, the sky shark is a fearsome flying predator that is a mutation of the more common Hunter Shark. Because they must return to water at least once every hour, sky sharks seldom roam inland more than a few miles. A fully grown sky shark is 15 to 20 feet long.
