Husbandry

Die kleinste Art unter den Hammerhaien, trotzdem immer noch zu groß für Privataquarien.

Einige kommerzielle Großaquarien können diesen aktiven Schwimmer wohl zumindest für einen überschaubaren Zeitraum in Schaubecken halten.

Diese Haiart kommt auschließlich in den flachen Uferregionen, mit Vorliebe in den Mangrovensümpfen und den angrenzenden Gebieten vor und gilt laut Fishbase als "für den Menschen ungefährlich bzw. als harmlos".
