Some nice footage of Hammerhead sharks at Orange Beach, Alabama this weekend according to the local newspaper Orange Beach News. Two clips have been making their way across social media, one by  Taylor Graham who was on Bird Island with his drone when a school of Hammerhead Sharks came swimming through.



As the Orange Beach News reports the sharks are a regular in the area where they search for their preferred prey including stingrays and flounder.

After the group of at least six adults and young cruised the shallow waters, they headed back out to sea.

As the Orange Beach News reports:

As you watch the video, notice how the hammerhead sharks gracefully glide through the crystal-clear waters, scanning the sandy ocean floor with their distinctively shaped heads.

Hammerhead sharks are known for their remarkable senses and hunting techniques. Their wide-set eyes provide them with an exceptional field of vision, enabling them to locate potential prey more easily. The iconic shape of their heads, known as a cephalofoil, acts as a hydrodynamic tool, allowing them to maneuver swiftly and efficiently.
