No one knows where these kinds of sharks originate, but they were believed to exist some 65-85 million years prior, with fewer million descendants still living as of today. The great black lion shark is a bit similar to a tiger shark as well as great white ones, although they are mostly dark-skinned with odd yellow to golden mane-like patterns that resemble an actual lion's mane. They appear to be much smaller than the extinct megalodon, but unlike them, they have only half the teeth a megalodon has lined up in fewer rows in their mouth, resulting in a crushing bite force of nearly 18,000-20.000 pounds. Each tooth is said to be around 20 cms in length, as this is one of the most dangerous sharks in the sea. In fact, it's so powerful that one can simply attack a cargo ship or even a ferry loaded with many people and leave a few large holes for it to sink, as its teeth can tear through metal platings. Because of this, lion sharks are often hunted to ensure their extinction.

A great black lion shark, while edible, is capable of breeding with tiger sharks, resulting in a new species of tigon and liger sharks. Luckily, these aren't as strong as their great black lion shark relatives, yet they can be several times fierce as pirahnas. They are said to roar like actual lions when stranded on land, but their lion's roar can be as loud as 300 decibles with approximately 10 meters, so one has to be far, far away. Strangely, one can kill this giant beast by feeding it certain, powerful drugs to pacify it, thus weakening its internal organs. They are often fished out of the water when killed, but this would mean more food for the humans and possibly other smaller animals (household companions). Furthermore, these sharks are not picky eaters since they will eat even the most serious of pollutions and whatever humans throw in the water as litter.

Their flesh is so delicious that it could keep a small fortified village fed for a whole 30 days or so. Their shark fins are often used as blades in order to make very good tools and weapons, specifically cutlass machetes. Their teeth, due to their extreme sharpness, are also carefully extracted in order to create land mines, although some are also manufactured into better kinds of armor and steel-piercing ammunition for numerous weapons---they can be reused for bullets a few more times before each large tooth breaks.
