Tyger Ray was identified on October 20, 2014 by Deron Verbeck. She was about 10 feet wide.
As Deron recalled: “Tyger Ray was very docile and tolerant of freedivers, making very close approaches with little or no deviation off her course. Her right cephalic fin is damaged and protruding out to the right. It appears to have been caused by fishing gear. She is named after my 16-year-old son Tyger Ray Verbeck.”
