Hang out with our hammerheads! Two new female scalloped hammerheads have been added to our Open Sea exhibit. These beautiful sharks are between one and two years old. For the past year, they've been growing up at our off-site Animal Research and Care Center, but now are big enough to join the community of fishes on exhibit. The unmistakable shape of this shark's head is believed to help it track its prey, possibly by improving its sensory perception. The adaptation also appears to increase its agility and maneuverability over other shark species.
