Footage showing fin position of rolled and upright scalloped hammerhead sharks. The camera footage on HH11 had two additional male scalloped hammerheads swimming with the tagged animal for several days. Rolling behavior can be seen of the camera-tagged shark (relative to a horizontal surface of the seafloor) as well as the two additional scalloped hammerheads in the footage (a, b). The dihedral angle of the lift surfaces (dorsal and high pectoral fin) can be seen on the sharks swimming on their side (a, b), compared to the anhedral angle of the pectoral fins when a scalloped hammerhead swims upright (c)
