The yakueko, or dire bonito, is a large predatory fish with cosmopolitan distribution throughout the known world. Juveniles live in schools, but adults are solitary. They are among the fastest animals of the inland sea, and their saw-like jaws are reported to dismember and decapitate on impact. There are legends that they will leap out of the water to take a sailor off a ship, but the naturalists of bolondakoi have yet to verify this and it is thought to likely be myth. They do readily hunt Kaimerans in the water though, so are certainly among the more dangerous predators in the crystalline waters of the Sloth Sea.
