    I was a little skeptical, thinking just a shark would be more necessary, but you make some very solid points.

    I would be both pleased and horrified to encounter this mob as a feature in vanilla mob! You have my vote.

    I like the image on the reddit>imgur better. This one seems a little too weird. Voted, nonetheless! Also +1 on reddit.

    Would we consider this in a way a mutated version of the turtle mob or something? If not I’m not too sure why it should have the shell, as it can’t retract into it (I’m assuming) wouldn’t it make sense to have more crocodilian type armour to allow it to have more flexibility and fit into smaller spaces easier?

    I love this idea, but I would prefer a shark, let me explain. We add the shark, but not the modern sharks of today, the megladon. The megladon could have all the abilities here except it would be more like a shark. I love your idea, but with all the "real" fish they added, having a fantasy shark feels more out of place to me than a real one.

    My dear man, This is simply an excellent idea. However, you haven't addressed the idea of special drops. Th way I see it, drops are truly what make a creature useful to the game. If this creature wasn't given a drop, it may just go to waste, so I propose two ideas. One: It will drop it's teeth, which can be thrown very quickly to do damage whilst in water. This will make this mob extremely sought after. Two: The mob which hunts all other sea creatures will collect the drops and loot in it's own inventory, for a certain amount of time, which I suggest to be approxametly two hours. This will allow the players who kill them to find all sorts of uses. In farms or just for food.

    Yes I like this idea a lot, but what I would like for this mob would be, that it would hunt you. It, as you said, is a predator...but I would like to see a mob that hunts you when you are in the water, kind of like a boss. It would kind of be like JAWS, where if you go into the water...you have a high chance of being eaten. 

         Also what would you get from killing this underwater monster? Would it be a new item? I would like to hear your idea for, why this mob would exist, other than to be a predator and bring terror to the waters. Otherwise, I think it's a great idea!

    Great idea, well articulated as well. I agree with aniv2345 and Shadowmage157 as well, it should have some drop that could cause players to seek it out. I do like the idea where the teeth could be dropped, then thrown by the player more than the fact that the Axodile would drop the fish that it killed, as fish aren't necessarily a sought after drop by players.

    I’m not going to lie, when I saw the post I thought it was going to be dumb. But after reading this and seeing the reddit image, I will admit I’m impressed. Keep surprising me.

    Xavier Pail, just in my opinion, adding a meglodon would not be adding a fantasy shark. I believe mojang would reject it. And also, I prefer the idea of a fantasy shark anyway.

    And drowned should be able to ride them the axodile jockeys should spawn normally with normal drowned seeing how slow drowned are it would make the drowned a little more dangerous

    Well let’s see mojang said no they would not be adding sharks because there “endangerd” but we could do a protest against that I like this idea so it’s a vote!

    This really just seems to be a fairyland version of the dunkleosteus shark.

    Could tweak the shell to make it more resemble Primordial armored fish like the Dunkeleosteos

    Its perfect! Its perfect because the creators swear that they haven't added sharks simply because they dont want to add real endangered animals to Minecraft. O.0 that in it self is mind blowing because of 80% of real like mobs in the game already lol. So this creature will make a perfect compromise as it is not real and has similar characteristics of a shark. Also its not undead lol too many dead type creatures already lol

    I think you should replace the image in this suggestion to the pencil sketch you made because I think it was more eye catching

    What if there was an undead skeleton variant of the axodile that is much more larger. This axodile lives in the deepest oceans of minecraft and is very scary to face with because of it's rotten skin and larger jaws.

    I absolutely love this! And I agree with your mindset that adding fantasy creatures instead of real ones can prevent as much controversy. It would also give more use to the impaling effect on tridents if you needed to defend yourself against one of these

    I've read the reddit post and I must say that I fell in love with this predator, specially the fact that it chances you over ice (could be a fun mechanic), only hunting during the day is also interesting

    I have read the reddit posts and the only thing I don't agree on is the drop, I like how the leather is used for hardcover books with better enchant chances, however I believe the upgrading armour mechanic should be exclusive tho the turtle helmet
