Hammerhead Shark Baby

SKU 267929

  • Born in litters of 12-15 pups, infant hammerhead sharks are abandoned by their parents shortly after birth. However, the young sharks form schools until they are old enough to hunt on their own. This baby has been separated from his siblings and needs a companion!
  • Scientific Name: Family Sphyrnidae
  • Characteristics: Painted by hand and crafted with stunning accuracy, this model depicts the hammerhead shark's atypical “cephalofoil” head which not only allows it to see above and below itself, but can also be used as a tool to pin down its prey. This helps the hammerhead keep its meal in close proximity to its uniquely positioned mouth, located underneath and behind its snout.
  • Size and Color: 7 inches in length and 3 inches in height, this baby hammerhead is roughly the size of a 16 oz. water bottle turned on its side. Sporting the most common coloration of hammerhead sharks, this youngling has a brown top which helps it blend into the dark ocean floor and a white underside which disguises it amidst the bright and sunny water's surface.
  • The Hammerhead Shark is part of the Incredible Creatures® collection.
  • All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free.
  • History:

    While not as famous as the Great White, tiger, or bull shark, the hammerhead is one of the most unique and specialized species of shark roaming the seas. Although this shark has grown out of its early infancy, depicted by its elongated rather than rounded head, you have nothing to fear; hammerhead attacks on humans are extremely rare.

    Hammerhead sharks are born with their "hammers" folded to the side of their heads. This allows them to be born more easily. The babies are called "pups" and can be born in litters of 12-15 at a time.
