That’s one wild dog…
Jumping in and going right after a big ol’ shark. No fear at all.
Hammerhead sharks are one of the most recognizable species of shark due to their unique head shape that is the reason for their name.
The largest species of hammerhead shark is the great hammerhead shark, which can reach lengths of up to 20 feet and can weigh up to 1,000 pounds. Other species of hammerhead sharks are smaller, typically growing to be around 6 to 10 feet in length.
Hammerhead sharks are predators that primarily feed on fish, squid and octopuses. Some species have also been known to eat crustaceans and other small invertebrates. Hammerhead sharks have a unique hunting strategy, as their wide head shape allows them to better detect prey that may be hiding in the sand or among rocks. Their eyes are situated on either end of their head, giving them a wide range of vision that helps them locate their next meal.
While hammerhead sharks are known for their predatory nature, they do not typically pose a threat to humans. They are usually fine around dogs too. But, like most wild predators, if they feel threatened they will attack.
This dog didn’t care that it was a big ol’ hammerhead though.
The dog is seen eyeing up the shark, then running to the shore line and jumping in after it. The dog swims right to the shark and seemingly gives it a few kicks in the water.
The shark swims away and the dog happily turns back with the shark gone.
Needless to say, the folks on shore are losing their minds… you can even hear one guy say:
“He’s fighting the f*cking shark!”
They say there’s a fine line between bravery and stupidity… I think this pup found it.
