    This video shows a different kind of Tiger shark demeanor where the Argo’s DM actually herded the Tiger shark down to where the divers were for photo opportunities.

    The photo you posted and the one at the start of the clip look like they were taken in rapid sequence; however I'm not sure that's the same shark shown in the video footage. The shark in the stills has a pretty ragged-looking dorsal fin; I'm not sure the one in the video has the same damage.

    Again, while I'm sure the "Bahama Mamas" at Tiger Beach are older and possibly better-fed, the 14/15-ft examples I saw there looked a lot bigger than the purported 14-ft example in the video:
