Wow, that is an interesting creature! It seems though that it should have toes if it's amphibious, but then again seals and stuff get along just fine.

It's amphibious (capable of using land and water) not to be confused with the amphibian (the type of animal).

When it does take to the seas the arms fold up into traditional shark fins.

An awful lot better than the nonsense they came up with for Sharktopus (a hot contender for the worst film ever made).
Nice design, I like it alot, although it seems as though the spines along its belly would cause a few mobility problems on land. Is the idea that they're 'soft' structures that would press flat as it drags itself along?

Thanks guys. And yea, it's fully animated. Though do to the nature of how sharks actually swim by moving sideways and the fact that the game is a 2D platformed, I winded u making him swim more mammal like.

As for the on land animations. I based it's walk cycle off of the walk cycle of the actual "walking shark" It also jumps around.

Lol. To be honest, this shark was made by following the anim8or shark tutorial, then I just used my imagination.
