Over the past seven days, according to the data, four registered shark sightings have been made off the coast of Perth Shark Smart.
The huge school of hammerhead sharks may have entered the area to hunt stingrays.
Fish, invertebrates and other sharks are also part of the hammerhead diet.
Their hunting behavior ensures that they travel in large schools, with the majority of school girls probably being women.
What made Mr Glanville's hammer hammer images extra special is that the species is generally active at night and goes out hunting.

It is likely that the huge school of hammerhead sharks was brought to the area to hunt one of the favorite prey, stingrays.
Stingray prey mainly lives on or below the ocean surface and contains molluscs such as clams, oysters and mussels.
They are also extremely territorial animals and because their eyes are on top of their heads, they have to rely on their sense of smell and the electric field feeling that also occurs with all sharks.
Meanwhile, bronze whale sharks are best known for hunting schools and they use those numbers to tackle larger prey.
The only deadly attack by a bronze whaler on a person was recorded in September 2011 in Bunker Bay, Western Australia, not too far south of where these statues were made.
