๐Ÿ”  Name- Great hammerhead (Sphyrna mokarran) ๐Ÿ“ Size- 50cm-610cm ๐Ÿ  Habitat- Coastal-pelagic and semi-oceanic, close to shore in shallow waters and commonly found on deep continental shelves ๐Ÿฝ Diet- Ranges from fish (mainly demersal species), other elasmobranchs (sharks and rays), crustacea and cephalopods (e.g. octopus) ๐Ÿ“ Location- Wide range throughout the tropics ๐Ÿ’ฅ Super power- Of course the โ€˜hammerโ€™ for a head must be this sharks super power! The giant cephalofoil is used to โ€˜pinโ€™ prey such as stingrays and gives these sharks a great advantage in hunting, making them a true top, apex predator! ๐Ÿ“Š IUCN status- Endangered โš ๏ธ Threats- Hammerheads are a hugely desired within the fin trade, and heartbreakingly experience high post release mortality (death after release) from fishing. Hammerheads are too often a victim of bycatch and the sport fishing industry, in addition to the beach fishing communities that knowingly or unknowingly allow the animal to โ€˜fightโ€™ itself to exhaustion โ„น๏ธ Interesting fact- Hammerheads have fantastic stereo vision and depth perception and can almost see in 360 degrees, giving them a better visual range than most other sharks! ๐Ÿ Competition- Win this image as a print!

Examples- How will you change/adapt your lifestyle, how will you educate others , what promise will you make etc. and one lucky person will be selected opening night of Shark Week 2018! ๐Ÿ“ธ &๐Ÿฆˆ caption by Annie Guttridge (@sharksneedlove) . . . .

We are currently preparing for a move and recently welcomed our son into the world. So...the boat has been at a stand still. For now.
