Tiger sharks are massive, weighing as much as 2,000 pounds and measuring up to 14 feet long. Their large size makes them one of the largest predatory sharks.
They are known to be opportunistic hunters and have a wide range of food they will eat. Basically, if they can catch it, they will eat it. They will eat fish, turtles, birds, dolphins and seals and have even been known to swallow metal.
These sharks have a bite force around 1,000 pounds per square inch making them able to rip things right apart when mixed with their razor-sharp teeth.
Tiger sharks are known to come and check out foreign objects like boats and kayaks just out of curiosity. It is extremely rare that these creatures ever attack boats or even people for that matter.
But, the unexpected can always happen out there.
Even though that can be the best part of fishing, like this, it also has the power to scare the shit out of you.
This guy was fishing away having the time of his life, even filming his action.
Out of no where, a tiger shark comes right out of the water and bites this guys kayak.
“Heard a “whooshing” sound, looked up and saw a wide brown thing on the side of the kayak. Thought it was a turtle at first. Happened so fast.
Didn’t realize I took my left foot out of the water to brace myself from impact and actually pushed the shark’s head off with it.
If you asked me to do that again, even without the shark, I don’t think I’d have that flexibility.
I actually only thought the shark rammed the kayak until I saw the video at home.”
Talk about getting the blood pumping.
