Rawr! No, no. The tiger shark is not a cross between a sea-going mammal and one of the largest land-based apex predators. But, the tiger shark ‘is’ one of the apex predators of the ocean. Given that the tiger shark likes to hang around in warm and temperate coastal waters, this often puts it in direct contact with humans. As an opportunist, it is not picky or squeamish about attacking us, but the number of said attacks is pretty low.
Still, you do not have to worry about that with this fierce little stuffed plush shark. But why not? He is as cuddly and safe as the real tiger shark is not. You can pick him up and pet him, give him snuggles, he will not bite, hard. (They are just love nips, promise!) Tiger sharks are so named for their unusual markings which are alike those of a tiger. Their gray hide can be marked with spots, lines or stripes similar to a tiger’s coat. That they are fierce, stealthy and territorial like the big cat tends to make the rest of the difference in spades.
Wild Republic’s attention to detail and authenticity will win you over, if you’re a fan of shark like we were when we were young. In point of fact, we wish stuffed animals as cute as these had existed when we were kids. That would have been so cool. This shark 12 inch long shark is made with 100% man-made, kid-safe materials, and makes for the perfect toy to terrorize your younger siblings with or the less aggressive inhabitants of your very own aquarium (preferably the meat-based ones. Tiger sharks love meat).
