Hammerheads are named for the distinctive shape of their heads- an elongated "hammer" shape called a cephalofoil . It's thought to give the shark superior binocular vision and depth perception . Researchers have discovered that hammerhead sharks have more electrosensory pores per surface area than other sharks. They use these electro sensory super powers to detect camouflaged fish hiding in the sand. Their hammer shaped head is great for pinning down their lunch. While of very little threat to humans , hammerheads are under threat by us ! Hammerhead populations are declining substantially worldwide due to over fishing . They are often cruelly targeted for their fins , and caught in commercial fishing nets as bycatch . Some species are now listed as critically endangered.
For every Hammerhead sold in the pre-sale I'll be giving $20 to Australian Marine Conservation Society for their amazing work protecting marine life.
Pre-sale delivery will start June 9th from Melbourne.
