A recently confirmed photograph of the rare Shark Bunny (Carcharhinus Lepus) in captivity. These deceptively lethal creatures can be found in southern subtropical regions in shallow flowing freshwater; streams and rivers relatively close to the ocean.
Locals of various regions shared their name for the partially terrestrial shark, the rough translation of which meant "leaping death." Western explorers initially thought it to be a creature of myth used as a lesson to scare small children from wandering off around water. However, the truth of this creature would ultimately be stranger than fiction.
Like most sharks, the Shark bunny is a carnivore. Utilizing an ambush style of attack; it will leap out of the water, bite down on exposed flesh of an unwitting prey, and promptly shake its entire body in order to literally saw off large chunks of flesh. The entire incident happens within seconds. Before the victim even realizes what has occurred, the shark bunny will have escaped back into the water with its morsel.
