Guess how Hammerhead Sharks get their name? Easy! From their hammer shaped heads! Their unusual head shape actually helps them to detect their prey more easily. Here at SEA LIFE Birmingham we provide a home for Thora and Freda, the only Hammerhead Sharks in the UK, where they live with Giant Green Sea Turtles and Black Tip Reef Sharks.
Things to Do
- Thora's party trick is doing a great impression of a hammer
- She spends lots of time chasing the Trevally away from their food
- Watch our Hammerhead's being fed mullet, squid & whiting for lunch
- Examine Thora's unusal shaped head
- Learn the threats facing Hammerhead Sharks, & how you can help
