Great Hammerhead Shark

Sphyrna mokarran

Description:

This Great Hammerhead was an unexpected sighting during a Tiger Shark dive trip. Although they can be regularly seen in Bimini Beach, Bahamas, we saw this at Tiger Beach, North Bahamas and it is also not during their 'season'. This female Great Hammerhead Shark was at least 3 meters in length although they can be up to 6 meters in length.

Habitat:

Seen on a shallow reef in Great Bahamas called Tiger Beach.

New Organism to Project Noah

@SukanyaDatta - Sharks may looks scary especially the bigger ones but they are mostly harmless and not likely to 'attack' divers. Most Shark attacks happened to non-divers especially surfers or swimmers at the surface. If you have the chance, you can watch the videos I posted at my Facebook, loads of Sharks all over the place surrounding us and coming up close to us, bumping to us and none of us got any scratch!
