Schleich - Hammerhead Shark - 14835
The hammerhead shark has a distinctive head shape: It looks like a hammer.
Hammerhead sharks feed on sardines, herring and mackerel. In the past it was thought that they killed prey by hitting it with their heads. Now we know that the unusual head shape allows improved vision. The eyes are located on the outside left and right of their head and give the predator a 360 degree view. The snout allows them to sense electromagnetic signals of their prey.
Most sharks are loners. Not hammerheads. They live in groups of up to 100 animals.
