Hammerhead Pencil Drawing

I did it!  I looked at enough pictures of hammerhead sharks to actually draw some.  In the process, I learned that there are nine species of hammerheads, but only three are dangerous to humans.  This is one of those three, the scalloped hammerhead. They school during the day, and are solitary at night. Females give birth to live pups but don't care for them at all.  I can't say honestly say I'd want to cuddle them, but they are graceful, striking creatures.  Large liquid eyes that can see 360 degrees really set them apart.
