Tiger Shark Terror Premieres Monday, July 24 8/7c Every diver has been warned that sharks feed at night, but is this a myth or does the truth lurk somewhere deep beneath the waves? Professional shark diver Eli Martinez and scientist Matthew Smukall plunge into the nighttime world of Tiger Beach to investigate whether shark behavior changes once the sun goes down.

Mission Critical: Sharks Under Attack Special Encore Airs Monday, July 24 10/9c National Geographic underwater photographer and Instagram star Brian Skerry is on a mission to change the perception of our oceans' greatest predators - sharks.

Shark Swarm Premieres Tuesday, July 25 8/7c Across the vast oceans are underwater oases where sharks congregate in huge numbers. What is the attraction at these mysterious waypoints? Join shark scientist Riley Elliott on a unique expedition as he investigates some of the largest and most mysterious shark gatherings on the planet.
