A Lava Shark can spit a pellet of lava as a missile weapon (short range 30', medium 60', long 90') dealing 2d6 damage. They use this attack when facing creatures outside the lava they swim in - those who cannot survive in fire/lava environments.

Lava Sharks resemble normal sharks in shape, but their flesh appears rocklike. They swim more slowly than normal sharks.

A Lava Shark totally immersed in water will be killed with a steam explosion that inflicts 1d8 damage (from scalding) on everyone within 10 feet, Saving Throw vs Breath Weapon for half damage.
