The great hammerhead is the largest species of hammerhead shark attaining a maximum length of 20 ft. It is found in tropical and warm temperate waters worldwide, inhabiting coastal areas and the continental shelf. A solitary, strong-swimming apex predator, the great hammerhead feeds on a wide variety of prey ranging from crustaceans to bony fish and smaller sharks. Observations of this species in the wild suggest that the cephalofoil functions to immobilize stingrays, a favored prey. Although potentially dangerous, the great hammerhead rarely attacks humans. It sometimes behaves inquisitively toward divers and should be treated with respect.
This shark is heavily fished for its large fins, which are extremely valuable on the Asian market as the main ingredient of shark fin soup. As a result, great hammerhead populations are declining substantially worldwide, and it has been assessed as Endangered by the International Union for Conservation. Great Hammerhead Sharks was filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro near Bimini Island in 2014.
