If a Sharkitten is attacked while near the Den, it will retreat to it. Sharkittens also retreat to the Den at dusk. In addition, if the Tiger Shark is alive, it will fall from the sky and appear to defend its kittens. The Tiger Shark will be hostile towards anything getting close to the Den.
Sharkittens may continue to spawn from the Den even if Monsoon Season has already ended.[Verification Needed]
