03 Jan She’s back: Katharine the great white shark pings off Florida’s east coast
MELBOURNE, Fla. – Katharine the great white shark spent the holidays off the east coast of Florida, most recently popping up off the coast of Brevard County on Wednesday, research organization Ocearch said.
"She has been enjoying the waters of Florida’s east coast for more than a month now," Ocearch tweeted.
Katharine’s tracker pinged off Hobe Sound in Martin County on Dec. 11 before she headed north toward the waters off Brevard.
Katharine is a 14-foot sub-adult great white shark. She was tagged off Cape Cod, Massachusetts, in August 2013. Since then, the 2,300 lb. shark has been making frequent excursions to Florida.
According to the Ocearch website, Katharine has traveled 38,955 miles over the last three months.
