Fish – Hammerhead Shark
Saturday, September 10th, 2022
Hammerhead Sharks, named for their oddly shaped heads, live in temperate and tropical oceans throughout the world and can be found in coastal regions as well as in deep water. Schools of Hammerhead Sharks sometimes migrate north during the summer to cooler waters.
Although rarely dangerous to humans, Hammerhead Sharks are aggressive and cunning predators. They use a special sensory organ, the ampullae of Lorenzini, located in their broad heads, to detect electrical fields in other animals. This organ, helps the Hammerhead Shark find stingrays buried in the sand.
