Lost your appetite? Incredible photos show tiger sharks swimming through a huge school of fish without taking a single bite
With their razor sharp teeth and menacing features, they are widely considered the monsters of the deep.

They show sand tiger sharks gliding majestically through a 'tunnel' of tiny fish, packed tightly together in a spherical formation known as a 'bait ball'.
Photographer Tanya Houppermans described one of her images - in which a shark swam out of a 'tunnel' and straight towards her - as 'one in a million'.
