Tigers are large sharks in Florida waters reaching up to 18′ and weighing over 3,000lbs. They are heavy bodied and have stripes coming down their sides and across their fins. Tiger sharks can be found on both shallow reefs along with oceanic offshore waters. Tigers are the second largest predatory fish in the ocean and are deliberate swimmers capable of high bursts of speed. They often approach divers with caution but can also be very bold. Tiger Sharks hunt and scavenge on a number of prey items: fish, birds, squid, whales, dolphin, and sea turtles.
