Appearance: Undead sharks have two forms, solid and ghostly. As ghosts they could take on a white see through (are see through mobs possible?) appearance. Upon becoming solid (during the hunt) these sharks would gain greenish grey scaly skin with a few open areas through which you can see bones (like on a zombie horse). Undead sharks could be around 5 blocks long, 3 blocks wide (including side fins) and 2.5 blocks in height (including dorsal fin).
Behaviour: The undead shark prowls shipwrecks looking for prey, using the sunken vessels holes to hide in order to ambush prey (includes fish, drowned and squid). While most of the time they swim around in ghost form, phasing through sunken ship walls, when hungry their eyes will turn black, they will take on their solid undead appearance and give chase, fortunately players do not taste great to these beasts so they will likely swim away after the first bite. However, if you’re carrying meaty food such as beef they might just take a few more bites...
Undead sharks could also have a taste for drowned sometimes ending up in fights between the two mobs, you could use this to your advantage and lure a drowned towards an undead shark to distract said ocean beast while you get the goods from the chest.
Drops: If killed in their solid form they will drop scales. These scales can be used to create a chest plate (durability of gold) that disappears upon putting it on, only becoming visible when the player is attacked or hungry. It could also allow for faster movement through water at 4 blocks a second for swimming and 3 blocks a second for walking through water.
