SYDNEY: A 1200kg hammerhead shark caught off the coast of Australia could become a tourist attraction in Queensland.
Fisherman Claude Williamson caught the 5m monster last month but has since sold it to renowned Queensland shark hunter Vic Hislop, a local newspaper reported.
Mr Hislop runs a shark museum but would not say whether the monster would be on display.
With the size indicating the shark is around 40 years old, the beast ate a smaller shark hooked by the fishing boat, getting snared in the process.
Despite its massive size, Mr Hislop has claimed that he has seen hammerhead sharks even bigger. The species is endangered worldwide.
