Land Shark

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Land sharks are native to the death world of Miral. They are carnivorous jungle-dwelling creatures capable of tearing human-sized prey to pieces in seconds.[1]

Colonel Straken was famously attacked by a land shark while tracking an Eldar patrol. It tore off his right arm (resulting in his famous bionic replacement and his moniker "Iron Hand") but he then claimed to have ripped the creature's throat out with his own teeth (though some more skeptical listeners thought it more likely that he was referring to his "fang" combat blade).[1]
