LAS VEGAS - A great hammerhead shark introduced amid fanfare into a Las Vegas Strip aquarium a year ago has died of an intestinal infection, hotel officials said Friday.

The 6-year-old female shark died late Thursday despite medication and veterinary treatment prompted by a display of unusual behavior, said Jack Jewell, curator of the Shark Reef attraction at the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino.
