It is found in tropical and temperate waters around the world and is known for its distinctive tiger-like stripes. Tiger sharks are apex predators, meaning they are at the top of the food chain. They eat a wide variety of prey, including fish, sea turtles, marine mammals, and even other sharks. Tiger sharks are also known to scavenge on dead animals.
