Perfectly designed to seek and hunt its benthic prey, this great hammerhead's (Sphyrna mokarran) cephlafoil (or hammer) is packed full of amazing sensors. It's downward facing mounth allows it to strike as soon as the sensors find prey. Perhaps less obviously, hammerhaeds are amazingly maneouverable, allowing them to react in an instant to prey as they find it.
