Yearly, dozens of feminine hammerhead sharks mysteriously convene in French Polynesia below the total moon

An uncommon, all-female meeting of nice hammerhead sharks has been gathering within the tropical waters of French Polynesia each summer time for over a decade, with numbers peaking across the full moon, scientists have found.

These critically endangered sharks convene in the course of the austral summer time, between December and March, round openings in two neighboring atolls — Rangiroa and Tikehau — within the Tuamotu archipelago. An atoll is a ring-shaped island or coral reef enclosing a lagoon that kinds when land erodes and sinks under the ocean floor.
