Location and eating habits of the Tiger Sharks.
Tiger sharks can be found in tropical and subtropical waters around the world, often near to the coast. They stay closer to the equator in colder months and use warmer currents as guidance. Prey can be pursued into shallow waters, but they tend to stay in deep waters that line reefs. On average, the Tiger shark is recorded at around depths of 350 meters (1100 ft), although they have been recorded at a depth of near 900 meters (3000 ft). They are uncommonly seen in shallow waters.
As an apex predator, the Tiger shark will eat almost anything. At a younger age, they feed mostly on molluscs, smaller fish and certain jellyfish. There is a considerable expansion in their food selection when they reach sexual maturity. They will now prey on dolphins, dugongs, seals and the larger sea turtles. Even other large sharks, including other Tiger sharks, are preyed upon. They have been documented feeding alongside Great White sharks, on ailing, injured or dead whales. Because they are aggressive and indiscriminate in their feeding style, inedible objects often get eaten too, including vehicle license plates and tin cans.
