Researchers have discovered that hammerhead sharks can dive more than half a mile below the ocean’s surface to catch their prey. This behavior has never been witnessed before in fish and was a surprise for the researchers. Not only do they dive deep, but they also hold their breath while doing so. This new information can help researchers better understand these elusive creatures and how to protect them. Hammerhead sharks have seen a decline in their population due to overfishing and habitat loss. Knowing their behavior can help conservation efforts to ensure their survival for future generations.
