ill say it once i will say it again. i love how you combine your creations to fit their surroundings. a land sand shark that can burrow into the soft sand would show the toughness that that would take. very well done. although i think the spikes are a bit overdone

pfft! Sand sharks are an awesome concept whose sole competitor for awesomeness are Space Whales!

very nice concept I like the thick rough scales and the fusion of body parts is perfect. Which is hard to do when pushing forms and limbs of the body that has layers of scales on top.

who cares if they're cliche? this is one of the more interesting concepts for a sand shark i've seen. i like how you kept it's trianglar face shape instead of rounding it off like i've seen on some designs.

I see the shark qualities but its coming off as more reptilian like a lizard. Maybe its the leg...?

It cant be a fish if it doesnt have gills, it just looks like a shark. Think like the group of aquatic reptires known as mosasaurs.
