What sea creature is nicknamed the "wastebasket of the sea"?
Small tiger sharks eat almost anything. That's where their nickname "the wastebasket of the sea" comes. Fish, seal, birds, dolphins and... trash are included into their diet! They have strong jaws and they can take very big bites and crunch firm surface. Speaking about human attacks, the tiger shark is the most aggressive one: it's the only shark species to come ashore and practically hunt for people.
