  1. bonnet shark

    A bonnet shark, also known as a bonnethead shark or shovelhead shark, is a species of hammerhead shark in the family Sphyrnidae. Scientifically known as Sphyrna tiburo, it is most notable for its distinctively flat, elongated head that resembles a shovel or bonnet. They are typically found in the waters of the Americas, from California to Brazil. Smaller than most other hammerheads, they are approximately 3–5 feet in length and mainly feed on crustaceans and small fish. They are also known for being one of the few species of shark that exhibit sexual dimorphism, with females being larger than males.
