Harrrrrrr Mateys
It be Fish Day Wednesday Harrrrr. Today Yer Cap'n is going to show you the Hammerhead shark Harrrrr.
There be two different kinds of Hammerhead sharks Harrrrrr. The Scalloped Hammerheads and the Great Hammerheads Harrrrr.

Here be a picture of the Scalloped Hammerhead Shark Harrrrr. How ye Mateys can tell it be a Scalloped shark is the head Harrrr. He have a flattened laterally expanded head. Its leading edge is convex with four distinct lobes the two central lobes produce an indentation in the center of the midline Harrrrrrr. Yer Cap'n be talkin scientific here Mateys.
There be several attacks on humans by Scalloped Hammerheads Harrrrr. That makes them very dangerous Harrr.

Check the teeth on this Scalloped Hammerhead Mateys.
Here be a Great Hammerhead Harrrrrr. The way you can tell the difference is by the head also
Harrrr. The Great Hammerhead head is flattened and expanded laterally. Its leading edge straight with four distinct lobes with an indentaion at the center Harrrr.
They be very dangerous Harrrr. They have many attacks on humans also Harrr.

Yikes Mateys, Yer Cap'n doesn't want to see this comin his way. Harrrr

Hi Maverick. Ooooo they look scary. It's a good thing I don't like to swim.

The judge's name (I think) is Peter. Can't remember his last name, from New Zealand, or Australia. My breeder took me to group but I didn't win.

Do you show? Post some pix!!
