A hybrid between a shark and a chameleon, and a bit of a copycat too! Can absorb pyro, ice and electric shark abilities.
— In-game description

The Sharkeleon is the seventh Top Secret Lab shark to be unlocked in Hungry Shark Evolution. It was added to the game in June 2018. Its special power is mimic. According to FGOL's social media, this Sharkeleon is called Franz[1].


The Sharkeleon can only be viewed when the Top Secret Lab is unlocked with a high score of at least 350,000. Once an additional score prerequisite is met (scoring 750,000 points), it costs 180,000 coins or 900 gems[2] to purchase, which is a regular price for one of the newest Top Secret Lab sharks.

Abilities and Diet

The Sharkeleon is a pretty decent shark that begins every game at a medium size (about a Tiger Shark's). It grows rapidly, but growth is not saved. When the Sharkeleon eats a hostile special shark, it can steal its ability. Abilities can be stolen from the Ice Shark, Pyro Shark and Electro Shark this way. The ability to steal other special abilities is called mimic. Stolen abilities will wear off after about a minute.

The Sharkeleon has an health bar that’s competitive with the health bar of the best sharks in the game. However, the boost bar is similar to the Great White Shark's.

The Sharkeleon can’t consume mines or extremely big enemy sharks. However, it can destroy vehicles and eat jellyfish right from the very start. When it hasn’t stolen an ability, it can camouflage to become invisible for when near a special shark, being able to sneak up on them without being noticed by the special sharks and the enemies around them.

The Sharkeleon is, on average, a pretty good special shark. Yet it’s not nearly as good as the Ghost Shark or Wereshark.
