Looks like we have a large non-cetacean visitor to the area! A carcharodon carcharius (or Great White Shark) with a tracking device sent a ping alerting her location to scientists today. She was inside the Ocracoke Inlet. The shark, named Mary Lee, has also been cruising the Crystal Coast lately, including appearances just off of Cape Lookout. OCEARCH researchers are tracking her at their Shark-Tracking website.
Mary Lee was tagged off of Cape Cod on 9/17/12 and has travelled as far south as Jacksonville, Florida. Be sure and visit OCEARCH.org to track her progress and discover more about Mary Lee and the important work being done by researchers and scientists working with the OCEARCH team.
Good luck, Mary Lee, and happy hunting (for fish).
