Best Answer

The tiger shark is very vicious and eats everything it sees in water. The sand tiger shark is shy.

The tiger shark, Caleocerdo cuvier, also known as sea tiger is a deep water macropredator, and lives primarily in tropical and temperate waters in the Central Pacific.

The sand tiger shark, Carcharias taurus, also known as the grey nurse shark, spotted ragged tooth shark, and blue-nurse sand tiger, lives in coastal areas along the shores of North America, Japan, Australia, and South Africa.

While all sharks are dangerous, the rate of human attacks by sharks is very low. Despite this, tiger sharks are the second most recorded species of shark/human attacks next to great whites, and attacks by sand tigers are extremely rare, due in large part to their shy demeanor.
