Tiger Sharks feeding on humpbacks

Recommended Posts

While we were recovering from DEMA, a humpback died and had several tiger sharks chomping on it in hawaiian waters... oh why didn't I go visit my friend in Kona instead of going to Borlando?!?

Humpback chomped by tigers

 

Speaking of tiger sharks and whales, I dived on a humpback carcass one time here in the Keys, out in the Gulf Stream. Tigers were feeding on it then too. It was just Paul Caputo and me in the water, me with a camera and Paul with a boat hook. As we swam through the blood and bits of flesh drifting down from the carnage above the tigers seemingly dispatched one sentinel to meet us. I still remember the moment as the 12-footer swam right in front of me; stopped still in the water, arched his back, dropped his pecs and very succinctly communicated “my food, you need to go NOWâ€. I was glad to get back to the boat, even without many meaningful photos. I've only had sharks chase me out of the water a few times, but here the intent was pretty damn clear. Now I have a polecam for such images of opportunity!

Great story Steve.

 

I've seen reef sharks do that once too and well, I decided it was time to depart.
