    Predator: A tiger shark like the one caught off the Bahamas yesterday. Human remains were found inside the shark's stomach

    Human remains have been found inside the belly of a shark in the Bahamas.

    The 12-foot tiger shark was caught off the Exuma islands in the Bahamas. Two legs, two arms and a severed torso were found inside its stomach.

    Forensic scientists are now conducting DNA tests on the body parts.

    Assistant Police Commissioner Glenn Miller said the remains appeared to be a couple of days old.

    It was not clear whether the person was dead or alive when consumed by the shark.

    The tiger shark can migrate long distances and has been known to attack people.

    Miller said at least two people have been reported missing recently on the archipelago.

    He also didn't rule out the possibility that the remains are those of an impoverished migrant whose boat might have capsized during a risky sea journey to Florida.

    Three fishermen made the grim discovery Saturday after hooking the tiger shark about 35 miles south of New Providence, the most populated Bahamian island.

    One of the fishermen, Bahamian investment banker Humphrey Simmons, said the remains were those of a man, according to The Tribune newspaper.

    'He had neither clothes nor any identifying marks,' Simmons said.

    Marie Levine, executive director of the Princeton, New Jersey-based Shark Research Institute, said that for all the hoopla about shark attacks, they're relatively few and fatalities are even fewer.

    'With tiger sharks, it's unusual for them to attack someone when alive,' Levine said.

    'They don't tend to go after something that's alive and can fight back.'

    She said tiger sharks, which have clean-edged, serrated teeth, are known to travel through Bahamian waters quite a bit.\

    That is soooo tempting, but I'm trying to be nice today.:o Short answer: No.
