The unique head of all hammerhead sharks serves as an improtant instrument for it’s owners. It contains plenty of electroreceptors which help shark to find prey under the sand using it’s electric field. Nostrils are placed far away from each other, so the shark can prescisely define the distance to the source of any smell, the same as we use our binocular vision to define the distance to the object.

Shark’s vision is not so good – it can not see what’s happening right ahead of it! Head shape also helps shark to maneuver, a very smooth head movement can lead to strong and fast body turn, the same as in wind sports and aerodinamics. This is the list of superpowers given to the shark by it’s absurd head.
