Niuhi – Tiger Sharks

In ‘olelo Hawaiian, both tiger sharks and great white sharks are niuhi, or ‘man-eating shark’. However both were revered as aumakua (family spirit guide or ancestor) rather than feared as man eaters.

Tiger sharks sport beautiful stripes as younger sharks, but these fade as the shark gets bigger. Easily identifiable by their blunt noses, they are the only extant member of the genus Galeocerdo. Tiger sharks have a well-earned reputation as voracious hunters. Their distinctive serrated teeth and undiscerning palate mean they dine on everything from rays to turtles and even birds. They attain >5m but very large tigers can grow to >8m. Found in tropical and temperate waters. Status: Near Threatened.
