Tiger sharks, like all other sharks, do not have a single bone in their body. Instead they have a skeleton made up of cartilage – the same type of tough, flexible tissue that makes up human ears and noses.
Tiger sharks can dive up to 3,000 feet deep into the ocean.
Interesting things have been found inside a tiger shark. Once, nine shoes, dogs, a driver’s license, a cow’s hoof, the antlers of a deer, medieval armor, and a chicken coop with feathers in it were found inside the belly of a tiger shark.
Tiger sharks are often referred to as the ‘wastebaskets of the sea’ because of their tendency to eat anything, even garbage.
