The Lake Shark was a aquatic lifeform that could only be seen in inland bodies of water. It was removed in Update 3 infrequently discussed since then to the point that some Coffee Stainers were unaware of it's existence until over a year after it was removed.. As of September 2023 it is currently intended that it's previous existence will be ignored when the game launches (i.e. 1.0) and not be given a lore reason for it's removal.
The Lake Shark swam very quickly and would patrol within its lake. Due to there being no underwater swimming available to the player, not much could be learned.
During its 'patrol', the Lake Shark would dive deeper into the water, possibly staying a certain distance from the lake-bed. It had also been observed diving when passing near the player, this behavior was consistent while the player is on land or buildings outside the water. When diving to avoid the player, the Lake Shark would disappear under the lake-bed, and then reappear nearby.
At lakes where this creature had been seen, the Space Giraffe-Tick-Penguin-Whale Thing would wade into the water, and both creatures appeared to ignore each other.
Large and small Lake Sharks had been observed, with larger Lake Sharks only being seen in lakes, and smaller Lake Sharks appearing in smaller ponds.
Because weapons cannot be used while swimming, as well as the creature's speed, it is unknown if Lake Sharks could be killed. However, shooting them with the Rifle wouldn't kill it.
