A Great Hammerhead passes by in close proximity, while a carpet of nurse sharks rest on the sand. Over the course of two days, and 2 dives, I had the awesome privilege of spending 180 minutes underwater observing and photographing these amazing creatures. Hammerhead sharks are a little on the timid side, but you would never know it watching them cruise around the dive area. The odd shaped "cephalofoil" is key to the Hammerhead Shark's hunting skills. With the wide head and a mouth on the bottom of it's head, you would think they'd have trouble eating anything substantial. Don't let that fool you - they can unhinge their lower jaw to consume prey of surprising sizes. Visit the gallery for many other images of Hammerheads, available for purchase in prints and home decor items to suit anyone's walls and shelves.
