Transcript of HAMMERHEAD SHARK
I have always been fascinated by sharks and all their adaptations. The hammerhead and its unique body structure are almost iconic for predatory animals. Here is some information about them.
Did you know?
Hammerheads use their wide heads to attack stingrays, pinning the winged fish against the sea floor
Hammerheads are found in a wide range of waters,
including off the coast of New Jersey.
One group of sensory organs is the ampullae of Lorenzini, which allows sharks to detect, among other things, the electrical fields created by prey animals. The hammerhead's increased ampullae sensitivity allows it to find its favorite meal, stingrays, which usually bury themselves under the sand.
