February 2020: Tiger Shark

Tiger Shark (Galeocerdo cuvier)

FaunaFocus will feature its first shark for the month of February 2020, the tiger shark!

The tiger shark is one of the largest ocean predators and relies on camouflage and stealth to capture its prey. This solitary, nocturnal carnivore is nomadic and can be found in the epipelagic and mesopelagic zones of neritic and oceanic habitats. The only viviparous species of its family, it gives birth to live young.



Create art inspired by the tiger shark and share it in the FaunaFocus Discord Server or on social media with #faunafocus. Learn about more ways to get involved with FaunaFocus!
