The Tiger shark is the fourth largest predatory shark in the world. However, when treated respectfully and very carefully, divers can swim among them.
Naturally curious, these fish will approach humans underwater. Tips for avoiding their mighty jaws include keeping out of their paths, wearing dark scuba gear, and using the dome of your camera housing to gently push them away.
EDIT: I took this shot in the water off the western Bahamas. This spot is known as "Tiger Beach."
