Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
A large, dangerous fish, often found hunting solitarily along coastlines.

The Hammerhead shark is one of many shark species implemented in Dwarf Fortress. They are enormous (about 500 kilo) and produce a fairly large amount of food when butchered. Like many other aquatic animals they don't produce bones.

They have a fairly high pet value of 500. Consider catching it alive with a fishery.
