The Story Behind the Name: Adeline is a tiger shark that was tagged in November 2013. She is beautiful and strong, just like Adeline Geiger, whom she was named after. Grandma “Tiger” would never have expected to see her name on a tiger, let alone a tiger shark, but she would have been excited to follow Adeline’s adventures. We will watch as Adeline moves through the ocean in loving memory of Grandma “Tiger.”
