Luminous sharks are very much like regular sharks, though they glow with a radiant golden-yellow luminescence that illuminates everything within 30 feet with shadowy illumination. They tend to stay in dark, cold waters underground, and rarely leave this area once a successful colony is established. When a luminous shark dies, its glow fades to a pale green and eventually disappears.


Luminous sharks circle and observe potential prey, then dart in and bite with their powerful jaws.

Blindsense (Ex): A luminous shark can locate creatures underwater within a 30-foot radius. This ability works only when the shark is underwater.

Keen Scent (Ex): A luminous shark can notice creatures by scent in a 180-foot radius and detect blood in the water at ranges of up to a mile.

Skills: A luminous shark has a +9 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line.
