She’s a shark with her own twitter handle, Mary Lee, the great white. Scientists tagged her in 2012, and ever since then, we’ve been following along on her shark adventures. As great whites usually do this year, she is coming up the East Coast to hang out in our waters for the summer. Her last “ping” was off the coast of Jersey and she’s moving North so the experts are saying she could be chilling by Long Island by Monday morning. AND she may even be pregnant, which makes me believe she is also coming up here to give birth (yay! great white babies).

You can see all the sharks being tracked with this very cool interactive map.

And here are some of Mary’s latest pings:

Sharks are terrifying, but they’re also pretty awesome creatures. Mary Lee is HUGE too: 16 feet long and 3,500 pounds. I also love that her name is very un-ferocious. She sounds like a cupcake almost. Check her out here in this video:
