Hammerheads are found worldwide in warm waters along coasts and continental shelves. They can be found in good numbers in Southern & Eastern Africa, Malpelo Island in Columbia, Costa Rica, Hawaii etc. They usually move around in groups and turn solitary hunters at night. They can be found in areas where their favorite prey like fish, squid etc are found in good numbers
