Video: Tiger Sharks Up Close...Very Close

If you like tiger sharks, you'll love this video.  It features six minutes of up-close tiger shark action taken from above and below the water.

The video was taken at Tiger Beach and features Emma, the locally famous 14 foot tiger shark who frequents the area.

In describing Emma, the videographer states that she is a "gorgeous gentle giant" and is relaxed around divers.  She did not show any signs of aggression while he filmed her.

He notes that she had recently given birth and still shows some bite marks from mating.  He closes by saying that he hopes she gets pregnant again and will give birth to a number of "small striped creatures."
