"Hammerheads" is the 5th episode of the Season 6 of the PBS Kids show Wild Kratts. It is the 143rd episode in the series overall and it premiered on November 6, 2019.
While the team is relaxing on the Tortuga, and Aviva is doing a Creature Power Disc check, Martin spots a hammerhead shark. He accidentally knocks all the creature power discs into the water and soon sink down into the sand. So the team decides to enlist the help of the hammerhead; one of nature's best predators that knows a thing or two about electroreception. But Zach starts making Zach-bots with hammer-heads to break down the Tortuga door and steal their inventions.
