A great white shark weighing more than 1,600 pounds and measured at more than 12 feet in length was recently swimming in waters off the coast of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico.
OCEARCH, an organization that specializes in tracking and studying marine life, pinged the shark's location off the coast of Pinellas County on Monday at 8:05 a.m.
The great white, named Miss Costa, has been hanging out in the water since then. OCEARCH pinged Miss Costa again on Monday at 10:05 a.m. and on Tuesday at 3:37 p.m.
A ping is determined when the tagged shark's dorsal fin breaks the surface of the water and transmits a signal to a satellite. The transmission then sends back an estimated geo-location, according to the OCEARCH website.
OCEARCH first tagged the female shark on Sep. 23, 2016, in Nantucket, Mass. and she's been a busy traveler ever since.
According to OCEARCH's website, she's traveled more than 5,600 miles since first being tagged.
