Top Right Solid Corner

The tiger shark, Galeocerdo cuvier, is responsible for a large proportion of attacks on humans and is considered one of the most dangerous of sharks. This is because they live in tropical and sub-tropical oceans, often close to shore, or in bays and estuaries, and have a higher degree of contact with people than most other sharks.

Tiger sharks are regarded as the most dangerous shark in Hawaiian waters, and were believed to be a sacred ancestor spirit by native Hawaiians. Even though they do occasionally attack, they do not seek out people, and incidents of sharks biting people in Hawaiian waters are rare, averaging about three or four per year. Fatal shark bites are extremely rare. Hawaii discourages feeding of sharks which would cause them to associate people with food.
