Storyboard Text

  • I want to get out of here so bad! I hope that one day I can meet a real, natural hammerhead
  • WOW! Now that i am in the ocean i can smell so much food!
  • I’m free!
  • Buddy, the ocean always smells this good.
  • Well this is my first time in the ocean! I have lived in my tank my whole life!
  • There is so much i don't know! You are so much bigger than me! How big will i get?
  • Let me show you around! First thing, about the smell, it’s called olfaction. Hammerheads use it to find prey because our eyes aren't very good. But our cool heads still make our eyes able to see more than other sharks!
  • Well I am only 18 feet and 750 lbs, but the biggest hammerhead I know, Tom, is 20 ft and 1000lbs!
  • That’s crazy, I hope I get that big! I had a friend who was a ray in the aquarium! He was 10 feet long!
  • Cartilage is pretty cool. Isn’t that what our fins are made of?
  • Yes it is. Unfortunately, because our fins are so large, lots of people like to catch us for shark fin soup. And our mating patterns are really easy to follow, so we get ambushed doing that a lot by shark fishers.
  • Well rays and skates are some of our closest relatives. We are all in the class elasmobranchii, which means we have highly developed senses and are made of cartilage.
  • As scary as that is, we have some good things to protect us from predators in the ocean. Our skin is sandpaper-y and hard to bite through, and we can detect electrical signals of predators so we can swim away before they get to us.
  • That is so scary! I do not want to get caught!
  • Yep, that’s your ampullae of lanzini. Our other organs include the stomach, gallbladder, liver, and spiral valve intestines.
  • That’s sick! If i think about it, I can detect you right now!
  • That is sad. Do we at least eat a lot of other fish.
  • What does that mean?
  • Crazy, how do we get our food in the first place?
  • Our sense of smell! And our tail moves back and forth and propels us through the water very fast! Not fast enough, sometimes.
  • Well, we tend to be bycatch of other fish a lot of times. That sucks.
