This time of year, Eli Martinez and his partner Maritza are on guided tours to help spread knowledge of these amazing marine animals. A huge, potentially deadly predator behaved more like a Labrador than an elite killing machine when it met a group of divers.
Eli is a shark behavior wildlife photographer expert as he has shown by simply giving Jenn a brush on her head as she passed by. Tiger sharks, along with large white sharks and bull sharks, are one of the most common shark species engaged in deadly attacks on humans.
However, all shark attacks are already unbelievably rare, as well as the renowned predatory fish are under much greater threat from humans, overfishing, and scavenging for culinary delights such as shark fin soup that kills thousands.
