Man vs. Shark

How did I miss this? It happened last June.

Whilst being the second most prolific "man-eater", next to the Great White shark, the Tiger Shark is a beautiful animal. They are typically a warm water fish (ask Hawaiian surfers about them) and will eat just about anything, including: license plates, gas cans and old tires, although their preferred diet includes, fish, seals, birds, smaller sharks, squid and turtles.

Tiger Sharks are known as the garbage cans of the ocean.

UPDATE: Apparently Tiger Sharks kill a higher proportion of their victims than Great Whites. (Animal Planet - When Animals Strike 2)
