Look out, Lowcountry, there’s a celebrity shark lurking in your waters.
Mary Lee, a great white shark who happens to have more than 100,000 Twitter followers, pinged her location on Sept. 24 about 20 miles off shore between Beaufort and Charleston, according to OCEARCH tracking.
Mary Lee is a massive 16-foot, 3,500-pound shark that has repeatedly pinged her location around Lowcountry since she was originally tagged by OCEACH in 2012.
According to OCEARCH tracking, Mary Lee has been spotted between the Georgia and South Carolina coast since early September. She pinged her location around the Tybee Island area Sept. 9.
Mary Lee is quite the mover. Within 72 hours, she traveled 119 miles, according to OCEARCH tracking. Since she was first tagged, Mary Lee has traveled over 34,175 miles through the Atlantic, as far south as the Bahamas and as far north as the Massachusetts area.
