Sharperl’s strikingly beautiful patterns aren’t the only thing in their favour. These strong and crafty predators are capable of delivering powerful bites with wickedly sharp teeth. No longer pack hunters, each Sharperl must thrive on their own, a feat they certainly succeed at.

Found in every ocean and often along any coast, Sharperl uses its keen senses to track prey both in the water and on land, honing in on a single scent with greater accuracy than most other animals.
