Tiger Shark Description
  This shark has tiger like markings (hence the name) against a dark grey back and an off-white underbelly. Pups are not born striped, but spotted instead. these spots then fade into stripes as the young sharks mature. It is responsible for some attacks on people, and is therefore greatly feared.
