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".


Sphyrna tiburo ist die einzige Haiart, die neben der fleischlichen Ernährung nachgewiesenermaßen auch Seegras frisst!


Shark bites can be quite lethal to humans, especially the 10 most dangerous shark species are considered and can launch unprovoked attacks from humans: - Great white shark - Bull shark - Tiger shark - Sand tiger shark - Blacktip shark - Bronze shark - Spinner shark - Blue shark - Hammerhead shark - Whitetip shark The bite by a shark is one of the most basic fears of humans, but the number of deaths caused by shark attacks is very low: in 2015 there were 98 attacks by sharks and in 6 cases the attack resulted in a fatal end for humans. In 2016 there were 107 attacks by sharks and in 8 cases the attack resulted in a fatal end for humans.

Please be careful not to go into the water with bleeding skin wounds, heed bathing warnings from the authorities and be very careful when using surfboards, as sharks can easily confuse the boards with seals and harbour seals. After shark bites, always call a doctor or / and the rescue service as soon as possible, as heavy bleeding can be life-threatening.
