WhyReef - Lifestyle

The tiger shark is a loner and travels long distances, swimming up to 50 miles (80 km) a day at speeds over 20 mph (32 km/hr). During the day, it is sluggish and spends its time in deeper water. At night, you can find it hunting on the reef. Because it’s active at night, it is nocturnal.
