The tiger shark, commonly known as the “Sea Tiger”, is the fourth-largest shark in the world. Tiger sharks get their name from eye-catching dark vertical stripes found on young sharks, also known as pups. As these pups mature into adults, the dark stripes begin to fade. The skin of a tiger shark typically ranges from blue to light green with a white or light-yellow underbelly, giving it great camouflage when seen from above or below.
