For Mako Sharks in Hungry Shark World, see Mako Shark (World).
"Known for its agility, the Mako is faster and stronger than the Reef Shark. Can take on more aggressive prey." - In-game description
The Mako Shark is a lot more powerful than the previous shark, the Reef Shark. Its max depth is 150 meters and it can grow to exactly 5 meters in length. The Mako Shark's hunting grounds stretch between shallow waters and twilight zones. Whereas its real life counterpart, the Shortfin Mako Shark, is the fastest of all sharks and can jump very high, in Hungry Shark Evolution, the Mako Shark is only faster than the Reef Shark and cannot jump considerable lengths. The Mako Shark does have adequate swimming abilities, however, as it is generally able to swim against underwater currents to catch zipping prey. Mako Shark requires 5000 points to trigger Gold Rush. A common disadvantage of the Mako Shark is its seemingly smaller mouth than the rest of the sharks. This restricts it from consuming lots of fish in one bite, and is usually able to eat only one or two creatures at a time. The Mako Shark is the second weakest standard shark in the game, only beating the Reef Shark in terms of abilities and power.
The Mako Shark costs 2,000 or 1,500 coins depending on the version or 25 gems to unlock.
