Hammerhead sharks

Class – Cartilaginous fish / subclass – Plasminogene fish (Elasmobranchii) / Superorder Sharks (Selach)

History of the study

The history of the evolution of hammerhead sharks has been very successful. In our days it is one of the most common shark species in the world, and in some places they’re just going in astounding quantities. Hundreds of individuals run around seamounts.

Few other species of sharks form such large flocks. This is one of the greatest mysteries of the ocean. Why are so many of these sharks gathered in one place, at one time. Oddly enough, in these large schools the majority are female, and we don’t yet know why this happens.


Widely distributed in tropical and temperate waters of all oceans, except, of course, the Arctic. Most commonly found in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean sea, near Hawaii, Philippines, New Zealand and many other seas of warm and temperate latitudes.

Hammerhead shark is truly one of the most unusual sharks. Her appearance seems truly alien, but it is quite common in tropical seas around the world.

When you look at the shark hammer head there is just one question – why this animal has this kind of pharmagology? What is it? And how it appeared? After all, nature creates freaks. And if it generates by mistake, they can not compete with “normal” types and die. All the more strange that there are many types of hammerhead sharks of all shapes and sizes, at least 9 different species. Surely nature could make so many mistakes and “give birth” so many freaks, well there are millions of years?! Continue reading
