Bonnethead Shark - Conservation Creatures Plush


Bonnethead Shark (Sphyrna tiburo) are closely related to Hammerhead Sharks, but are much smaller. Their heads are narrow and rounded at the front edge, which gives them the nickname “shovelhead shark.” They are found in tropical and sub-tropical waters on both coasts of North America, including REEF’s TEP, TWA, SAS, and NE regions.

REEF Conservation Creatures are iconic marine species from REEF’s Volunteer Fish Survey Project regions. These marine creatures highlight the diversity of ocean ecosystems and encourage understanding and respect for marine life. We hope they inspire you to join REEF and learn more about the marine environment!

Each plush comes with a Conservation Card that provides information about the critter's habitat, characteristics, potential threats, and global distribution in REEF's Survey Project regions.

Choose a plush marine animal from your favorite REEF Volunteer Fish Survey Project region, or collect all of the creatures for a diverse and cuddly array of ocean life!
