Tiger shark on the hunt

Tiger sharks are known to devour just about anything they can get their jaws on. Their list of edibles include fish, jellyfish, cephalopods, mollusks, sea snakes, dolphins, sea turtles, dugongs, seals, sea birds, rays and even other sharks! They are also known to scavenge on dead whales, or attack and eat injured whales.

Tiger sharks are also incredibly stealthy hunters: They slowly approach their prey, and once they get close enough they quickly attack. The shark’s colouring also helps it to blend in with darker waters. Take a look at this apex predator in action by viewing the video above.
