Vulnerable when the Great White is around!

Scientists are calling this an anomaly. A 1,400 pound shark at almost 13 feet long has pinged about 60 miles near the coast of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  Cue the ‘Jaws’ music here.

According to Channel 9, research group OCEARCH is not unfamiliar with the massive sea creature. “Breton” as they named him was first tagged in Nova Scotia back on September 12, 2020 and he apparently has spent the past two months in Florida.

Now he is happily making his home near the Grand Strand and scientists reportedly are not quite sure why.  The people who know about these things say Great White Sharks are usually up north by now.  The migration usually takes place between May and June according to shark scientists.  But Great Whites apparently go where the food is or for mating reasons.  To learn more about Breton and where he is, check out all the details from WSOC.
