The Great Sand Shark is a Hardmode, post-Plantera miniboss that can spawn during a Sandstorm. It can be summoned manually by using a Sandstorm's Core at any time in a Desert. It behaves similarly to the more common Sand Shark, swimming through the sand and jumping out of it to attack the player. However, the Great Sand Shark has increased size, speed, and other stats, making it a dangerous foe.
- Despite normally being an Expert Mode exclusive debuff, the Great Sand Shark can inflict Feral Bite in Normal Mode worlds.
- The Great Sand Shark shares its custom roar sound effect with the Mauler.
