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

Hammerhead sharks are large cartilaginous fish that can be found in tropical and temperate oceans. Adult hammerheads are enormous, nearly nine times the size of an average dwarf, and as such provide a great amount of meat when butchered. As fully-sized creatures, they can't be fished by fisherdwarves, but can be caught with a drowning chamber. An infant hammerhead shark is called a hammerhead shark pup.

Being cartilaginous, hammerhead sharks won't give bones if butchered (though they'll still provide a skull).

Some dwarves like hammerhead sharks for their oddly-shaped heads.
