The Hammerhead Shark is the most common member of the finned-fish group. This large fish always appears in the ocean during the summer months, between June and September. Between the hours of 8pm and 4am, this is the only shark that can be found. The hammerhead shark has always sold for 8,000 Bells, except in the PAL versions of Animal Crossing: Wild World, where it sold for 12,000 Bells.

Donating to the Museum

As with all fish caught in Animal Crossing series, the hammerhead shark can be donated to the museum in each game by talking to Blathers, who will also give some information on it.

In Wild World

Upon donation, Blathers the curator will say:

"Hoo! Indeed, WOO hoo! A hammerhead shark! The fin of the hammerhead shark is used in some foreign cooking, eh wot? Indeed, it is used in a delightful delicacy called shark's-fin soup! This dish is usually quite pricey because of all that goes into its preparation. Why, it takes three days merely to reconstitute the dried shark's fin! After THAT, the chef must pick out the skin and cartilage with tweezers! Only after all that can it be used as an ingredient. THAT is a just cost!"

In City Folk

Upon donation, Blathers the curator will say:

"Ah, the hammerhead shark, also, I believe, known simply as the hammerhead in certain circles. The hammer-shaped head is thought to give this shark a great sense of its environment...like radar. Compared to other sharks, this one wears a bit of a daft expression that some people find charming!"

The hammerhead can then be found "pacing" in the back tank, much like the blue marlin.

In New Leaf

In New Leaf, an information board in the aquarium will list information about this fish.

"The hammerhead shark is a shark with a head like a hammer, which is what you'd expect. However, despite being sharks, they are actually fairly laid back, which is not what you'd expect. With their eyes positioned on the two ends of their "hammer," they can see in almost all directions. Oddly, their nose holes are located right next to their eyes on their hammer section. They have a number of small holes on the front and lower portions of their heads as well. These holes allow them to detect prey, even fish hiding below them and out of sight. While they eat a nice array of fish, it seems that rays are their favorite source of food. Rays, beware!"

The smooth hammerhead's name comes from its hammer, which lacks any sort of central indentation. It is a rather common hammerhead shark, and the second largest after the great hammerhead. Its fins are valued for the delicacy shark fin soup.
