Wear Your Bonnet
Can you imagine a shark wearing a bonnet? That would be funny looking- not to mention hard to swim with- hahaha! Today we are meeting a relative of the hammerhead- the bonnethead shark!!
Bonnethead Shark Fun Facts:
- Bonnetheads are smaller sharks- they can grow up to 59 inches- about the length of a refrigerator.
- They call estuaries, bays and sandy bottoms their home.
- Their heads are more rounded than that of the larger hammerhead species.
- Like all other sharks they are carnivores.
- Bonnethead sharks live in small groups.
- They can live up to 15 years.
These smaller hammerheads are so cool. A recent study by scientists may suggest that they eat sea grass, which would make them omnivores! Wow! That would be super cool!
