This odd-looking shark grows from 3 to 20 ft. in length and weigh from 7 to 1,279 lbs. They’re usually light gray in color with a greenish tint. Their bellies are white which allows them to blend into the ocean when viewed from the bottom and sneak up on their prey. Their heads have lateral projections which give them a hammer-like shape.
You can find this child-friendly version of a Hammerhead Shark on display at Mallory Square in front of the Key West Sea Aquarium.
