The Bone Body is one of the body evolutions that you can apply to your shark in Maneater.
Unlocked by defeating the Apex Hammerhead Shark in Sapphire Bay, the Bone Body evolution is a part of the Bone Set, which offers Damage Reduction bonuses.
Bone Body Official Description
“When activated, this evolution gives you the Bone Crusher ability. It is recharged by biting or consuming creatures.”
How to Unlock the Bone Body
To unlock the Bone Body evolution, you must first open the Sapphire Bay area on the map by progressing in the story.
After completing the missions to eat creatures in the set locations of Sapphire Bay, you will then draw out the Apex Hammerhead Shark.
Defeat the Apex Hammerhead Shark to unlock the Bone Body evolution.
Bone Body Parameter Boosts
Along with the effects and abilities granted, without considering the Bone Set perks, a Tier 5 Bone Body adds the following to your ratings parameters when equipped:
- +5 Defence
- +6 Damage
(Each ratings parameter is made up of 20 sections, each of which contains five points. So, adding an evolution that boosts a rating by +5 will fill the equivalent of one section.)

The Bone Body grants your shark the Bone Crusher ability, which is described as:
“Bone Crusher turns you into a bone battering ram, allowing you to shatter boats like glass.”
