Hammerheads

The first part of book 3 of Ysabel the Summoner takes place underwater. This series is a YA fantasy, so the more fantastical the creatures, the better.

Enter the hammerhead, prowler of the deep.

Sweeping their popeyes back and forth gives them a panoramic view. They detect electrical impulses given off by prey hiding in the dark and under the sand.

Next are Japanese spider crabs, aka tall-footed crab. My girl is going to meet some scary creatures.
