Hammerhead Sharks are found worldwide in tropical and temperate waters, where they are seen near shorelines and reefs as well as in open ocean far offshore. They have a lifespan in the wild of about 20-30 years and can grow up to 20 feet (6 meters) in length. That’s big! These monsters could weigh in at as much as 1,000 pounds (450 kg).
