While rumored to be in previous games, '''sharks''' are confirmed to be in GTA V. According to the private demo shown to the press, they are hostile in the game, capable of attacking and killing the player. Before attacking, they circle the player in groups, gradually getting closer (similar to real shark behavior), and appear as dots on the mini-map when they are in the vicinity.

If the player is swimming, the shark will continue circling, gradually getting closer. Eventually the shark will attack, but only if the player is in front of it.

Since GTA V has a large countryside, and the fact that Red Dead Redemption featured many animals, it's possible that we may see many of Red Dead Redemption's animals, and perhaps some new ones. Animals such as deer, black bears, beavers, ducks, and mountain lions are common throughout California and the Southwestern United States, so it is reasonable to think they may appear in the game.

Animals have been rumoured to appear in several Grand Theft Auto games, although most of these are generally believed to be created using unofficial modifications. Rockstar have, however, confirmed that animals, including wildlife, will appear for the first time in Grand Theft Auto V, including dogs who will guard restricted areas and will alert enemies of the player's presence, and sharks while exploring the ocean. Around Mount Chiliad and other countryside area is heavily habitated by wildlife, mostly deer.

Rockstar has stated in the past that they do not like the idea have having children or small animals in their games[1], possibly due to the controversy that could be caused by making them killable - although dogs were present and killable in Red Dead Redemption, another game by Rockstar. They have since stated that without wildlife in GTA V's world, it would feel "too hollow", especially due to the large amount of countryside.

Types of Animals

Dogs

Dogs will likely be the most common, as well as the most utilized, animals in GTA V. Franklin Clinton, one of the protagonists of the game, looks after a rottweiler named Chop who appears in certain missions.

Sharks

Sharks appear in GTA V as hostile animals, capable of attacking and killing the player. They spawn at random in all depths of the oceans around San Andreas, particularly in Blaine County, usually by themselves or in groups of two or three. When a shark is in the area, it appears as a red dot on the map, and will circle the player or their boat in curiosity. If the player is swimming, the shark will continue circling, gradually getting closer. Eventually the shark will attack, but only if the player is in front of it. Being killed by a shark unlocks the "Out Of Your Depth" achievement/trophy.

According to Abigail Mathers, a Stranger & Freaks character, sharks in GTA V are "San Andreas White Sharks", a fictional subspecies of Great White Shark. They are endangered, hence why they seldom appear in-game.

In the PlayStation 4 trailer, hammerhead sharks can be seen.
