The Newest Addition - THE GREAT HAMMERHEAD
For the first time ever in the United States, The Great Hammerhead Shark is now on display. Shark Reef has accomplished what no other U.S. aquarium has ever done - successfully transported and displayed in captivity this fascinating shark. It is distinguished by its characteristic hammer-shaped head, making it one of the most unusual predators in the ocean. Adults average more than 500 pounds and are officially reported to reach 18 feet in length. The female living in Shark Reef is a juvenile, currently weighing less than 60 pounds and measuring approximately 6 feet in length. The Great Hammerhead is considered one of the ocean's most fierce predators. An adult hammerhead does not have a single predator in the water - except for another hammerhead. Great Hammerheads are one of the few ocean creatures that exhibit cannibalistic behavior.
You can now see this animal on exhibit in the Sunken Ship Wreck inside Shark Reef.
