In terms of looks, the hammerhead shark is definitely one of those sea dwellers you can easily make out among the ocean’s vast assortment of life, largely because of its uniquely-shaped head, which is officially called a “cephalofoil”. Hammerheads can be found swimming in the seas in various parts of the world where warm water exists.
The size of a hammerhead shark typically varies from as small as three feet in length or just over nineteen feet. The shark’s belly is white, which mean the shark is harder to detect when viewed from the bottom. This trait provides the hammerhead an advantage when hunting prey. In regards to prey, hammerhead sharks generally stick to swimming about in large schools during the daylight hours. It isn’t until night falls that it decides to break from the school and embark on a solo hunting trip. Octopus, stingrays, other sharks, and squid are a few examples of the type of sea life the hammerhead likes to incorporate into its diet.
The hammerhead’s cephalofoil provides some distinct visual enhancements. Because of the location of the eyes, the hammerhead has the ability to view what is above and below it at all times. The cephalofoil also serves a useful purpose in helping the hammerhead pin down prey such as stingrays.
