Mary Lee, a 3,456 pound great white shark, was spotted off the coast of Maryland this week.
Meet Septima. She’s a 13-foot-long, half-ton tiger shark, and she recently took a vacation to Ocean City.
We know this because Ocearch, the global shark tracker, put a tracking tag on her back in May when she was hanging out in South Carolina. Since then, she’s traveled more than 3,000 miles up and down the East Coast — including her recent Ocean City jaunt.
Planning to go to the beach this weekend? Maybe you shouldn’t read on any farther. Because Rehoboth just recorded its first-ever shark attack (don’t worry, the kid who got bit is okay), and a shark-tracker has spotted a great white traveling between Virginia Beach and Ocean City. But shark attacks are really rare, and you probably shouldn’t let that stop you from getting in the water. Right? RIGHT?
