Scalloped Hammerhead Sharks are migratory and tend to travel in large schools.
They tend to be closer to the shore during the day and father out shore at night.
They form large schools, up to a hundred, during the day to obtain food easier, especially larger prey.
Juveniles will be closer to the surface while adults tend to stay much deeper in the ocean.
Scalloped Hammerheads are shy sharks and will avoid people if confronted.
