Great White Shark Moves Back to Northeast
The great white shark known as Mary Lee is headed north again after spending a number of weeks this winter along the Southeast coast. The 3,500-pound shark was off Long Island, N.Y, on Thursday. Earlier, Mary Lee traveled as far south as Jacksonville Beach, Fla.
Mary Lee and a second great white, Genie, were tagged in September. Genie headed south but because she doesn't surface as much, her travels are less well-known. She was off the coast near the Georgia-South Carolina line earlier this month.
