TIGER SHARK FACTS 

One of the largest sharks in the ocean.

Average length between three and 4.2 metres.

Mainly found in tropic and subtropical oceans. 

Diet consists of fish, molluscs, crustaceans, sea turtles, seabirds and mammals. 

Numbers decreased due to commercial and recreational over-fishing.

As Mr Weston extends his arm out towards the shark and shakes the fish around, the shark opens its mouth and bites down.

Mr Weston slowly moves backwards, allowing the shark to get fully into the camera shot.

As if feeding the terrifying beast wasn’t enough, he then grabs it by its nose as it swims away.

Tiger sharks have caused 31 deaths world-wide making them the second deadliest shark in the world, according to 2017 figures.

There were 2,785 unprovoked shark attacks around the world between 1958 and 2016, International Shark Attack File statistics suggest.
