— In game description

The Tiger Shark is a shark introduced in Hungry Shark: Night. It also makes an appearance in Hungry Shark Evolution. Its maximum size is 7 meters, and the maximum depth is 275 meters.

Hungry Shark: Night

The Tiger Shark makes its first appearance as one of three playable sharks in Hungry Shark: Night. The Tiger Shark is the only shark you originally have. The other two, the Hammerhead and Great White, have to be purchased using real money since ads cannot be watched.

Hungry Shark Evolution

The Tiger Shark is the fourth standard shark to be unlocked in Hungry Shark Evolution. She is based on the real life Tiger Shark.


The Tiger Shark costs 15,000 Coins or 200 gems to unlock in Hungry Shark Evolution. The Tiger Shark is a powerful and durable shark. She can consume inflated Pufferfish, Gulper Fish, and Enemy Electro Sharks in addition to the Hammerhead Shark's diet. The Tiger Shark consumes prey extremely quickly, second to only the Great White Shark, Megalodon, Big Daddy, Mr. Snappy (Mosasaurus), Alan, Destroyer of Worlds and Moby Dick. The Tiger Shark has enhanced boosting abilities. Normally, when fully upgraded, a full bar of boost is sufficient for swimming down to the deepest depths. This large amount of boost enables the Tiger Shark to leap very high into the air to catch pelicans and Helicopters.

The Tiger Shark's high health makes her fit for taking on the first, second and third Giant Crabs. The fourth Giant Crab may pose a challenge but it is still possible to take it down with the Tiger Shark (if equipped with the Crab Fork). In fact, the Tiger Shark is one of the best sharks for fighting the Giant Crabs as its reduced health drain proves beneficial when food is scarce in the crab lair. The maxed out Tiger Shark still has 100 less health than a maxed out Great White Shark so the Great White Shark would be even better for fighting Giant Crabs. The Great White also has a low health drain.
