Tiger Shark Photos - Considered One of the Most Dangerous Sharks

The tiger shark, Galeocerdo cuvier, is the fourth largest shark, after the whale shark, basking shark and great white shark, averaging 14 feet long and up to 2000 pounds. It lives in most of the worlds’ tropical and sub-tropical oceans, and is found in large numbers around Pacific islands, where it lives close to the coasts in the deep waters just off of reefs.  Tiger sharks prefer warmer waters, though they have been found in temperate waters, and tend to stay closer to the equator during cold months. They will swim swiftly in quite shallow water when pursuing prey, and have been observed in harbors and estuaries.

Tiger sharks hunt mostly at night, alone, and reach from the surface waters down to over 1000 feet, and swim at around two miles per hour, with occasional sprints when needed. It is not a commercially fished species, but is fished by “game” fisherman, and slaughtered for its fins, and the liver which is a source of vitamin A used in vitamin oils.
