A great white shark tracked by research organization OCEARCH is currently basking in the waters off of the Maryland coastline. The 3,456-pound shark, Mary Lee, is equipped with a tracking device that periodically pings her location to OCEARCH.

Over the past two days, Mary Lee has been traveling back and forth between waters off of Maryland and Virginia; she has most recently been located 20 miles from Assateague Island.

Be advised: 16 ft 3500 lbs white shark Mary Lee pinged in or near Chincoteague Bay this morning! Follow Mary Lee:...
