Key West Hammerhead Shark

There’s no not recognizing the Hammerhead shark. These fish possibly are the most recognizable of sharks, due to their odd, mallet-shaped head and wide-spaced eyes.

Those wide-spaced eyes actually make them better at hunting prey than other sharks. In addition, other sensory organs located in their heads also help them find prey.

For example, one of those sensory organs, the ampullae of Lorenzini, allows them to sense electrical fields created by prey animals, such as the hammerhead’s favorite meal, stingrays, which tend to bury themselves under the sand.
