The Brute Shark is an upcoming, aggressive fauna species in Below Zero.


The Brute Shark has a streamlined body that is mostly grey in color. The body features two large wing-like fins on each side two large wing-like fins on each side. In some areas, bright yellow-colored bands adorn its body; on the snout, behind each fin, and one behind each of the eyes that continue until they meet on the back. It has a small dorsal and pelvic fin, but lacks a caudal fin entirely.

The head has two side-mounted eyes that fit into shallow recesses in the head just behind the mouth. The mouth itself appears to be composed of a distinctly thicker layer of tissue to the rest of the body, possibly being bony plates. Its jaws are filled with sharp teeth, seven pairs on the upper jaw and six pairs on the lower, for a total of twenty-six.


The Brute Shark is a medium-sized predatory species that seems to take design inspiration from rays in the case of its wings, sharks for general body shape and behaviour. The mouth appearance somewhat resembles the bony plating of placoderm fish. In shape both the mouth and teeth have a very crocodilian appearance. It was designed by Alex Ries.
