Scalloped Hammerhead Sharks - Manō Kihikihi
These sleek and graceful beauties are found around the world. We saw them schooling in the Cocos and Malpelo Islands, and also in Los Revillagigedos, Mexico; a humbling, and majestic sight that is increasingly rare due to illegal finning practices. Hammerheads school in groups numbering in the hundreds, and generally these tend to be younger sharks; older sharks prefer smaller groups. Males grow to around 6 ft, females up to 8 ft. Their eyes and nostrils are found at either end of their uniquely-shaped head, and enables them to see 360 degrees. There is a lot of inconclusive discussion as to why their heads are shaped as they are, but likely it increases surface area, and enables them to better detect electrical currents (such as fish muscles contracting for hunting). Contrary to popular lore they are not aggressive, but really rather shy and skittish around divers. Sadly, these beautiful and graceful sharks are now officially on the CITES endangered species list.
